The term "new normal" has been bandied around a lot lately. It's becoming very easy to travel past the same scenes of destruction or demolish on a daily basis and not a bat an eyelid, but if you go to another part of town you haven't seen since before the earthquake it can be quite horrifying.
I have yet to see the majority of the centre of town, Sydenham, the eastern suburbs, Ferrymead, Sumner and the hills. But what follows below the fold is what I see on my daily bike commute to work, my new "normal". (Photo intensive, all photos can be clicked on for larger viewing).
