Image taken today at Sumner in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. The reason for the many containers was due to the earthquakes which have shaken our city to the core and caused widespread damage and loss of life. #10137668

Well, in Philadelphia, Mural Art marked the beginning of the city's urban "renaissance." What great medicine for blight of any sort! And the backdrop here is fantastic!

By the way, our town on the Delaware River has a new riverfront home that was built entirely of railroad containers. It looked crazy while under construction, but it turned out beautifully. I must go and photograph it! #10137779

Certainly makes thing HAPPIER and beats all the old rusty sides of the containers.

Our city has thousands of containers which have many uses. They are being used to prop up damaged buildings. We have a temporary mall operating their shops out of containers and they are being used, as in this case, to prevent rocks falling on to the roads, but these ones have been painted with beautiful scenes to fit in with the surrounding area.
