Wow Dominick, you nailed it. Your talent is amazing. And yes, I was thrilled to spend some time with you Dominick. I just loved watching you enjoying your passion for photography and especially with the kids in the tree. I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in NZ. It was a pleasure to show you around.

A wonderful capture showing the force of this tragic event, Domnick! This must have been a superb cathedral in its day!
I hope today's little quake didn't shake you up too much!

Beautiful "Corinthian Columns" on this Cathedral, Dominick!!!

I do hope the Cathedral can be salvaged.

So many quakes and tremors last year and this year..which is 'young'.

Stay Safe, My Friend!!
