Last week I got an email from the 100th Regiment Of Foot Historical Society. They asked if I would mind letting them use this photo for their newsletter. I took this on the grounds at the Museum of Civilization in May, when the museum was hosting activities for Norway's Constitution Day. The original post, if you missed it, is here. The Norwegian embassy had asked them to come in uniform; the 100th is a group of living history interpreters with an emphasis on the British military in the early 19th century. You can find more about them at this link. I replied back that they could feel free to do so, with my compliments. I don't recall telling them about the photoblog, so it was a surprise to hear back from them. And this past weekend, on Colonel By Day, I was down at the Bytown Museum, and lo and behold, they were among the various historical groups and organizations that were present by the Ottawa Locks.
That's cool! You are on the way to stardom... :-) And very nice of them not to steal it.ReplyDelete
They seem to enjoy themselves!ReplyDelete

You need to create a professional portfolio. You never know where this will lead.ReplyDelete

really nice they contacted you first! :)ReplyDelete
Kudos to you. It's a very fine photograph, not only of the Foot group but also of the background. Your city is a delight and very beautiful!ReplyDelete
How very nice!ReplyDelete
that is cool and so nice that they asked you!ReplyDelete
A great picture in any possible way, bravo!ReplyDelete
How cool is that William.. I can so see why they wanted to use this shot, excellent composition and colours..ReplyDelete
People who dress up in old costumes and reenact battles and things used to call themselves reenactors. How they prefer to be called living history interpreters. Whatever they call themselves, I enjoy what they do!
@Tex: it was.ReplyDelete
@Marleen: thank you.
@Tanya: it is nice to know the blog is reaching people like that.
@VP: thank you!
@Grace: it really is such a good location for photography, after all.
@Cheryl: in the past there have been people inside the museum who have done much the same thing.
That is an awesome shot! Once in awhile I will have someone ask to use a picture. I always say yes. It was only when I found out that someone had been using my pictures for over a year and posting them as her own on her web page that I became upset. I only found out thanks to a follower who told me he had seen my pictures on another web site.ReplyDelete
Neat! My policy has been to allow free use of a photo to someone (or a group) who is in the picture.ReplyDelete
I love the costumes!ReplyDelete
Love those outfitsReplyDelete
Always flattering to be asked like this. And better than having them pinch your photo. ;0ReplyDelete
It's always nice to have people appreciate your work and especially to ask permission before they use it!ReplyDelete
Great story, it was very nice that they asked and had use for your photo. Congrats!!ReplyDelete
Bravo! Not only was your work found, they were polite enough to ask! Doubly good!ReplyDelete
@Judy: I was pleased to let them have it.ReplyDelete
@Linda: and these fellows certainly are. I don't imagine the women will know about it anytime soon though.
@Linda: they look quite distinctive in uniform.
@Mo: they're ready for inspection.
@Bibi: oh, yes!
@RedPat: it is.
@Bill: thank you!
Isn't it fun when people come out of the woodwork to seek you out! Well done!ReplyDelete

Cool! That's a nice compliment. LOL Maybe you should have charged them. I'm glad you didn't.ReplyDelete
I didn't. I've been paid for a photo the odd time.Delete
That's great William, it is a lovely photo and I do remember your original post.ReplyDelete
It feels good when a surprise email like that arrives. It kind of validates the time and effort you put into doing photography for your blog.ReplyDelete
