A snapshot from the red zone in central Christchurch.
Friday, March 18, 2011
It is hard to believe that this was a vibrant city, bursting full of history, culture and people and in 45 seconds has been alienated - changed forever into a scar of rubble, possessions and skeletons of buildings. The most poignant part of this video (which I really hope you can view!!) is the silence from the footage straight after the quake (except for wailing alarms) and the birdsong from the footage taken a few weeks later.
