Things that make you go hmm
This is what happened to a Christchurch bookshop in last weekend's earthquake. A pile of books is strewn all over the floor. One of the most beautiful cities in the southern hemisphere suffered an estimated $4 billion damage, and thousands of people have been affected, but thankfully nobody was killed. I couldn't help but notice the tome in the foreground of this picture, which I haven't read, by the way. Without wanting to make light of this event and the devastation it caused, this picture is an attempt to find some humour in it, in an obscure Aussie/Kiwi type way. I'm definitely not suggesting that the quake was an act of God's judgement, but it appears that the anonymous photographer has a sense of humour and an eye for irony.
