After the September 2010 Christchurch earthquake, I got to see some interesting things on the way to work. One of the most surreal was a crane rescuing a chandelier as a building was demolished. It was placed with utmost delicacy into the hands of its owner, to cheers from the crowd.

A local street artist has commemorated Christchurch’s deadliest earthquake. The anniversary is tomorrow. Where the photograph was taken was the site of the Ozone Hotel, which has now gone as well.
