Although I couldn't find photos of the exact failures you were looking for, here's a few good earthquake damage photo websites.

This site has over 8000 pictures:

Subject: photos of EQ damage

Can anyone recommend a good source(s) for photos of actual earthquake damage to wood-frame buildings, and concrete/masonry wall anchorage (to wood diaphragm) failures?  I'm looking for specific connection failures - cross-grain tension failures, plywood tearing, portions of structures separating, etc.
