Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPLightsAtNight

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

This weekend’s tag was #WHPLightsAtNight, which asked participants to take creative photos and videos of lights at night. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.
