February 2012 photos
You had to be up early or late to see Ronnie van Hout on Worcester Boulevard. On one of those Christchurch CBD mornings when there is no-one out walking, I saw him.

Wildflowers grew on Victoria Street. They were only there in that brief transitional moment between demolition and rebuild. I wish all demolition sites could look like this.

Brannigans on the corner of Gloucester Street is demolished. You can see through its skeletal remains to the Government Life building in Cathedral Square.
