Mark Lincoln's Earthquake Photographs

Photographs of the earthquake damage around Christchurch, taken by Mark Lincoln. The photographer comments "Unfortunately not all of the photographs are particularly professional! Most of the time I was using a ... point and shoot which I actually ended up filling with silt - another casualty of the quake! I was also using a smaller photo size for a lot of the early photos as I had no power at home so couldn't transfer the photos off the SD card."
