A Closer Look 6 - Chamber and Coat of Arms

Continuing with our closer look at the British Columbia Legislative Assembly Buildings, above is a photo of the chamber where the provincial legislators meet to govern the province. At the far end is the Speaker's chair. The photo on the left is the official British Columbia Coat of Arms on one wall of the ground floor of the rotunda. This coat of arms has had a long and somewhat controversial history which you can read about by clicking HERE.

What lens did you use for this photo? I'm in the market for a very wide angle myself (although for a Nikon).

Thanks all for your kind comments.

Al- Both photos in today's post were taken with a Sigma EX 10-20mm f4-5.6 DC on my Sony A55. It's one of my favorite lenses. It's sharp and you can have everything in focus practically from the end of your nose to infinity.
