Here are pictures from our Earth Hour no lights music jam night. It was the perfect opportunity to test out my new Canon G10 in low-light conditions. Yes, you heard me. G10. A step up from the G9 that was lost in the infamous grinching of '08. I have to work my way through the manual since Canon seemed to change a few critical elements, but so far I am in love. It is incredible. I love it more than cheese.
Its first task was low-light, high action fire twirling. Here is Erwin:
I am a bit annoyed that I didn't get a chance to look through the manual before Earth Hour, because I think if I had fiddled a bit more I would have been able to get a shot where his face was clear. But they came out nice anyway.

G10, you are a rock star. Hope everyone enjoyed their Earth Hour as much as we did. Nevermind that it is an act of symbolism whose good effects are probably outweighed by the amount of petroleum that goes into the making of a candle. Think warm, happy, let's-save-the-planet thoughts. At least for an hour.
