A torn boat cover -- the only damage visible in Christchurch Harbor after a series of strong gales.

Christchurch (New Zealand) has built a temporary cathedral which incorporates cardboard tubes into its construction, hence its popular name. The architect is Shigeru Ban.

The construction of Christchurch Priory began in the 11th century as a Norman church, on the site of a Saxon church that had been destroyed after the Norman conquest.

Some more shots from the forgotten SD card! This was the start of the best sunset I have ever seen!

These arches are in two pairs and are six meters high

Archives...this was taken in 2005 when we went on a three day-on-the-bus- across the strait by ferry- sight-seeing and back, to Christchurch...What a hurly burly "holiday"...but this was worth the effort...and the Christchurch Cathedral will not be seen like this again because of the NZ earthquakes on 22 February 2011, at 12.51pm.

Walking to work in Christchurch through Hagley park, a frosty September morning gives an otherworldly feel to the start of the day.

The heritage tramway in Christchurch is currently the only tram operating in New Zealand. The route opened in February 1995 to cater to the tourist market and operated until the 2011 earthquake damaged the tram circuit. The tramway reopened in November 2013 on a limited route. A new extended route opened in February 2015.

Founded in 1863 with the planting of an English oak tree, the Christchurch Botanic Gardens have grown from small beginnings to become a much-loved destination for Cantabrians and visitors alike. Over the years natural wetlands and sand dunes have been transformed into an elegantly cultivated 30 hectare park with more than 10 different gardens framed by mature trees and expansive lawns, which are mostly contained within a loop of the Avon River.

 

If you enter from Rolleston Avenue, next to the Canterbury Museum, you'll walk past annual bedding displays and across the archery lawn to the rose garden. For much of the year, the collection of modern and cultivar roses make this a colourful and fragrant place. Adjacent to the rose garden is the New Zealand garden, which provides an introduction to native species. The conservatory complex displays everything from cacti and succulents to tropical orchids and carnivorous plants.

 

The Christchurch Botanic Gardens are open every day from 7am and admission is free. The Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre, open daily from 8.30am - 5pm, houses a gift shop with an array of locally sourced products, many with a botanical theme, as well as a café and a permanent interactive exhibition.

 

Not the biggest castle in the world, but we're proud of it. Also, there's not an awful lot of it left, but then, it was built in the late 11th century.

Great weather, but very brown up the top due to the lack of rain.

Looking towards Christchurch across the fields.

Haven't been able to get out and take any photo's lately, or even spend much time on Flickr.

I have really missed my Flickr fix, so have uploaded a photo from my archives, to satisfy my cravings. Apologies to all my contacts for not doing much in the way of commenting of late, but will try and catch up!

“Nucleus: the positively charged centre of an atom. Christchurch was my place of study and remains the centre of my practice. So this title and the sculpture have a special significance for me. The artwork is a celebration of place. The simple singular form made of four equal parts are a reflection of Christchurch, with its well planned and laid out built environment. All the parts are connected and necessary for the whole to function. The plinth, with its exposed structure and beauty through function is a celebration of Christchurch’s engineering and industrial base.”
