I’ve picked a few of my favourite photos of this year. It makes me realise – we have seen a lot.
Street art to the max. It was in the Canterbury Museum, it was on the streets. Brilliant stuff.
Christ’s College gargoyle.
Hydrangea reflections in the Christchurch Botanic Gardens.
Sand sculpture at New Brighton.
The trams are back.
Hereford Street reopens.
Last day of kindy.
Sans camera for a while as it was water damaged by flood. Used the camera on my phone.
A tribute to Mellory Manning.
Pallet Pavilion, with Dan Rhodes’ book.
Owen Dippie’s ballerina mural on the back of the Isaac Theatre Royal.
The Price Waterhouse Coopers site, Armagh Street.
Bye bye to the Pallet Pavilion.

I am no Urbex explorer, but I did nearly fall through a window getting this photo. Tip – don’t lean on earthquake damaged windows. Lichfield Street.
Matariki at Rehua Marae.
Light and trees.
Dairy at sunset.
The re-opening of Cuningham and Townend Houses in the Christchurch Botanic Gardens.
The beautiful sunrises and sunsets this year counterpointed bits of ruin.
Dirty Politics by Nicky Hager.
These guys popped up out of nowhere, and later disappeared as easily.
Another temporary glory – the graffiti house on Cranford Street.
Probably my favourite of Christchurch’s new buildings – this stately reflective beauty on Cambridge Terrace.
