Our Awesome Planet officially supports Earth Hour 2008. I was excited to be a part of the lights out event today at 8pm-9pm. The main Earth Hour event was held in the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) lawn area. I decided to document the Earth Hour Manila 2008 in CCP via this Photo Essay. Also, can you share your own Earth Hour experience?
People eagerly waiting for the lights out event in front of CCP area.
30 seconds countdown to lights out.
CCP with full of lights. This is right before the lights were shut off by 8pm Manila time.
CCP, Star City, Jollibee, SM Malls, Meralco, and many others joined the lights out event. The entire Roxas Boulevard lights were shut off, SM Malls reduced lights by 50%, CCP/ Star City lights were off for an hour. The only lights that I see are coming from the hotel rooms in the area.
Our family is committed to live an environmentally friendly life.
During the lights out, there were a few performers to entertain the crowd. The one hour just passed by...
Earth Hour is perfect for Night Photography....
