Look Up, Way Up

We don't know at what PechaKucha Night this photo was taken -- the Flickr page we found it on says it was taken June 23, 2010, and according to the calendar there were PKNs in Amsterdam, Las Vegas, Vancouver, and Belfast that night -- but we sure love the lighting that overlooks the crowded venue. If you do know at what PKN this was taken, let us know in the comments. Update: Looks like the winner is Vancouver -- Vol. 12 -- held at the Queen E Theatre. Thanks, Jem!
