Well, I have been back for a few weeks now, and was in Dunedin when the quake hit Christchurch. What a terrible tragedy! Thankfully being so far south, I didn't feel it at all.
Kiwis are great people, and despite the heartache and loss of life, I am sure that with all the support both from within New Zealand and internationally that in time Christchurch will recover.
As far as photography went, I did not get much time to dedicate to it, and I just shot when an opportunity presented itself. My favourite shot is of an old caravan owned by my uncle, which was on my cousins dairy farm. We stayed in this caravan for a number of nights.
