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."

A view down Manchester Street, looking south. The road is noticably buckled, and rubble from damaged buildings can be seen beyond the cordon fence. The photographer comments, "Today I ... went for a walk along the cordon to the north of Christchurch CBD which runs about one street back from Bealey Avenue. The soldiers manning the cordon seemed happy for me to take photos but I couldn't see much of the city from the barrier ... what you can see shows there's obviously a lot of damage. The roads are swollen and raised in many place. The once flat CBD will now feature plenty of hills as well as natural traffic calming features".
