The South Frame of Christchurch is slowly taking shape. The goal of the south frame is to connect parts of the city centre with pedestrian and cycle access.

The image above is a close up of the stunning cloak design that is on the side of the carpark building for the Justice and Emergency Precinct.

This section is Mollet Street – which will have a vertical garden once the plants start to make their way up – is part of the Greenway which will have distinctive gardens.

Winter has us in it’s grip. Not too cold though for a brisk walk to the Ferrymead shops.

Had a late afternoon walk around this city today, so decided to pop into Stranges Lane and have an early dinner at Lower 9th Diner.

Isaac Theatre Royal

July 12, 2017

While I was at the theatre last night, I took the opportunity to take a few photos of the dome and the detailing on the walls. I’m usually in the theatre with just a smartphone on me, so it was nice to take a photo of the fresco with a proper camera. To learn more about the restoration of the dome visit http://isaactheatreroyal.co.nz/our-history/2011-earthquake/restoration-of-the-dome/
