A small section of the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Decorated for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth ll on June 3, 1953. I was stationed in Ottawa at the time and took this image about midnight a few days before the actual coronation.
The camera was an Exakta Varex 35mm. SLR, using Kodachrome film ,ASA 10, F 2.0 Biotar lens and probably several seconds exposure wide open on a tripod. Scanned in 2004 with a Canoscan 4000US scanner.
