The Christchurch Botanic Gardens are just a few metres from the centre of Christchurch where most of the inner city buildings are in the process of being demolished following 2 devastating earthquakes. Here two mates have escaped the nearby chaos and are enjoying a chat about the 'old' days!

Very nice photo. This view reminds me another Botanic Garden near Pattaya (Thailand). Good title and splendid composition. A peaceful pace indeed.

An abundance of beautiful colours in this springtime capture. The two persons add interest and colours and they are well placed in the composition. A very pleasant and peaceful scene.

There seems to be at least 100 shades of green in this photo. The two men add some more colours that seem to accentuate the overwhelming dominance of green in this very pleasant looking park. The fine atmosphere is also due to the excellent light.

A good photo of a peaceful scene. My only visit to Christchurch saw us caught in a massive cyclonic storm leaving the gardens a ruined mess of upprooted trees and other debris. Chirstchurch must be due for a chnage of fortune.

Hi dear Marlene, how are you?
Ya greatly calm and peaceful image!
Green color touch in total unity is so desirable and pleasant to see. Deep expsoure setting makes all parts so celar. Two men's position and atomsphere are also nice. Indeed tranquility I perceive. Many thanks for your sharing and have a good day!
