"lights out SF" happened last night. this was a city wide effort to conserve engery where certain landmarks turned off their lights from 8-9pm. different photographers donated their time to get before and after shots of the landmarks which was pretty cool. you can see their pictures of the buildings here. i went to the top of twin peaks to get wide shots of the the bay bridge and the golden gate bridge.
you can see in my photos that the city didn't get very dark. i was hoping to see lights start flicking off creating some dramatic effect. it wasn't as dramatic but it was good to see the city support the efforts by turning off the major landmark decorative lights. it was pretty cool to see city hall lights and coit tower go off too. i didn't realize how much they illuminated at night.
