It is sometimes very amazing how relevant photography still is today. This image was taken just seconds after the quake that devastated the city of Christchurch in New Zealand earlier this week. There is so much damage and loss of life, it hard to imagine what these folks are going through when you live on the other side of the world. I was personally taken back by this photograph and the raw power that it shows as the dust cloud envelopes the city.
My heart goes out to everyone that is dealing with this tragedy.
