Sunday stills: From the TV.

Helicopters are used this this search and rescue.

Twenty countries fell victim. Many were tourists, and some were language students. We had many international helpers. Here the Chinese came searching for more than 20 students. This photo is taken on Chinese TV.


The woman on the right escaped death, she held the hand of the other woman's son who was pinned to the ground by the rubbles. She didn't leave him until help came. Sadly he didn't make it.


This 27 storey building houses the Chancellor Hotel. It is the second taller building in Christchurch and is in danger of collapsing.href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-fzE9Pqcchlo/TWnkRxlm2RI/AAAAAAAAPFY/Syx8ALCYSHo/s1600/quake%2Bhotel%2Bchancelor.jpg">

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: T.V Shows or Movies
Posted in Sunday Stills, Sunday Stills Challenge of the Week on February 20, 2011 by Ed

This will get a bit wierd but fun and you don’t have to leave the house. Simply put on your favorite t.v. show or movie and photograph the show and we can all guess whats on the tele. And we also get to see that you are into viewing…. Have fun..:-)

When I read Ed's instructions last week, little did I know that New Zealand would be thrust into the world's lime light. This is reality TV. Our second largest city Christchurch had a devastating earth quake. The photos are not very good, I kept getting a band moving up and down the screen.

I was thought about you when I heard about the earthquake. I hope it didn't affect your family directly. We prayed for the earthquake victims at Mass today.
