A Photo a Day of Christchurch New Zealand

The Canterbury Sale Yards


A derelict building façade that was once the Canterbury Sale Yards. Now what is left of it is frequented by taggers, with graffiti all over the remaining walls. For some reason I’m drawn to taking photos of ‘urban decay’! But this has enough blue sky and light to make it kind of wistful almost.

Red Chair in the Avon


This part of the Avon River is right in front of the Christchurch hospital and you often seen patients sitting out getting some sun – so I’m wondering if this is a hospital chair?

p.s. later when I got home, I wondered why I’d not tried to pull the chair out of the water (as the Avon is very shallow). It occurred to me that when I am in ‘photo mode’ I’m very much on auto pilot and very focused on the shot!
