Over the past 10 months the once peaceful city of Christchurch in the South Island of New Zealand has been haunted by a plethora of devastating earthquakes with hundreds of fatalities. To date there have been over 7000 earthquakes. This photo was taken on Worcester Boulevard, opposite the Christchurch Arts Centre. It was a dull, cold day, so I used a monochrome 'film' which captured the sombre mood of a mourning city; this was coupled with underlying parallelisms of an angled shot emulating the recent seismic events.
This photo was taken using the Hipstamatic app on an iPhone 4 .
