Pyrmont, lamp and bench

This lamp, tiered bench and decorative pergola are located at the Pyrmont end of the pedestrian walkway on the Anzac Bridge. I chose this photo to highlight Earth Hour, an annual event to to raise awareness of the need to take action on climate change. Participants switch off lights and electrical equipment for one hour at 8.30pm on the last Saturday of March. Earth Hour started in Sydney in 2007 with approximately 2.2 million people and 2,100 businesses taking part. It has grown every year and spread across the world, with 4,000 cities and 128 countries involved in 2010.

  9. Awesome!!! Shot! I missed Sydney.

    I joined Earth Hour since it was started and every last Sunday of the month I switch off all electricity at home. MB not helpful, however, I am trying, or at least!

  11. This looks like a giant spider, with the pointy legs. In NZ, they say Aussie spiders are so big.
