Architectural Details Inside Centre Block

Finishing my series from Parliament Hill today, I start with a detail shot from within the Memorial Chamber.


Down on the ground level, I took a moment to photograph around Confederation Hall. Corridors branch off from here to the House of Commons, the Senate, and the Library of Parliament, as well as the multitude of offices in Centre Block. The Hall is a photographer's delight.
