Big Ben's Dark Night

So with the G 20 Summit that just happened here in London there were a lot of groups wanting to get their messages out there for the people to hear or in this case, for the people to see. Earth hour happened last Saturday and the lights in 3,200 cities landmarks went out in order to conserve energy and fight against global warming. A couple of girls and I thought it would be cool to be there to watch as they turned off Big Ben- we were right, it was cool. The funniest thing was when this guy walking by us asked if we would like him to take a picture. We said yes and he said to us as he was taking the picture- "Sorry, it really is prettier when the lights are on." We just laughed with each other since we were there to see it with the lights off...Lights on...Lights off and in black and white...Us in front of dark Big Ben... Sepia Style!
