This is a sort of companion to my posting entitled “Christmas Past”. The nativity scene was a part of the Christmas events at St. Joseph’s Oratory in Montreal, Canada. The photo was taken the same night, Christmas Eve 1955, midnight Eastern Standard Time, as Christmas Day was just beginning in Montreal. Freezing cold, the camera was pulled out from inside my parka and set up, very quickly, to get the photo. I was worried about freeze-up but it didn’t happen. Exakta Varex 35mm. on a tripod, using Kodachrome ASA 10 film. Can’t remember the exposure but probably about one second at F2.0. would be a good guess. The slide was scanned in 2004, at 4000 dpi with a Canoscan 4000US scanner.
