Earth Hour in Mawson Lakes
My beloved Boatdeck Cafe (extreme left) was the only shop in Mawson Central to observe Earth Hour. They had candles on every table, was kinda romantic :). I sat down for a cup of coffee and a caramel slice.

I have a healthy dose of scepticism regarding this whole Earth Hour business and how much of a difference it’s really making to our planet, but I must admit it was kind of a fun thing to take part in :).

These are the photos I took around Mawson Lakes (our suburb near uni) a few minutes ago with my D60. I was nervous about what people would think of a weird guy walking around a neighbourhood at night with a camera, so I bumped up the ISO a few more levels and lowered the aperture number to take the photos faster!

The Mawson Lakes river with the train station in the background. Usually the water is reflecting a ton of lights from houses and buildings.

The roundabout next to our street. Absolutely nobody has their lights on!

Only two houses on our street are lit up. Ours is not one of them :)
