Couple of phone pics I took as I walked home from work.
This is a 15ish story bank with a full glass facade which I was in front of when it struck. No glass left on the bottom floor.
Probably Christchurchs biggest landmark, the Cathedral. Now Irrepairable. Very sad.
A bar in town. The photo cuts out the top story which is totally gone.
Quite and old, refurbished restaurant in town. That large I beam that is on the road was put in after the first earthquake to help protect against aftershocks.
Building just down the road from where I work. buildings with this sort of damage are very common around Christchurch now. I saw over 35 with this much damage on my way home. I'm sure there are many more.
