Poppies in the City.

“The photo was taken during the spring time, and I think it represents the city starting to come to life again. The flowers in the foreground are a contrast to the damaged, popular city centre nightspots in the background, but they make it look beautiful and remind us that life goes on.”   Date: 5 October 2015.

Christchurch City Libraries has been running an annual Photo Hunt in conjunction with the city’s Heritage Week since 2008.  The 2016 Photo Hunt is running again from 1 – 31 October. During the month of October we will be posting a series of images from earlier Photo Hunts.
