This is the ceiling of a war memorial chamber inside Ottawa's Aviation Museum. It is an incredible space.

The museum is quite typical, but in the middle of it, there is a small opening leading to this incredible anti-echo chamber! It has a forty foot ceiling, draped with aluminum walls all around but it is so absolutely quiet and peaceful. Once you are inside it, you instantly feel intimate with your thoughts. What a great place to reflect upon the airmen who died serving our country?

Doesn't the spirals remind you of aperture blades? I can imagine what it would be like to be inside a camera lens in this space.

Even though it doesnt look like it, this was taken with a fisheye lens at 10mm.

    Edward, I am a quilter, and I have made a quilted wall hanging inspired by your photo of the ceiling in the Ottawa Aviation Museum. May I print your photo and attach it to the back of my wall hanging? Thank you, Ann Ramsey
