Yes, New Zealanders are out numbered many times over by sheep! If you need proof of the importance of sheep to New Zealand’s economy, check out this giant ram is on top of the Dominion Carpets building on Durham Street.
The shop window pictured is for a store on High Street which sells mirrors and frames. There’s a lot going on in this picture – with reflections from the window and the mirrors, but I rather like it! Not a good shop to walk past if you are having a bad hair day!
This is a shot of the Blond Red fashion boutique located on High Street. High street is something of a mecca for Christchurch fashionistas, with many of our local Christchurch fashion designers setting up shop on High St. I love the red dress in this shot!
Barbadoes Street is the oldest cemetery in Christchurch, opening in 1851. It is the resting place of many of Christchurch’s early settlers, and sadly many of the gravestones are for young children (victims of epidemics). The cemetery is divided by a Street (Barbadoes) with Anglicans on the east side and Catholics (and dissenters) on the West side. The two pictures are of the West (Catholic side).
The ivy (pictured above) is just growing around a small collection of gravestones.
