PDP #197: Slightly Less Light Hour

I went downtown for Earth Hour last night. Remembering the degree of relative enthusiasm with which it was taken up last year, and given that I now have a camera that actually takes decent low-light photographs, I was interested in seeing Toronto dark. I wasn't totally let down. City Hall was almost totally dark, whereas right next door Old City Hall was bathed in golden light for, as far as I can determine, no reason at all. All the lights in the Bay were off, and skyscrapers like First Canadian Place were darker than usual - but not much darker.

But the police did close off Yonge Street to cars and opened it to pedestrians, allowing me to get a bunch of photos from the center line. That was nice.
