The Colonel

Today I finish this series within the Bytown Museum with this bust of Colonel By himself. I will be back in here again sometime soon.

    1. I didn't even notice that until you said it.

  2. It is a pity that he can not see well that way. If had another statue clearer, I would like to see it.

  3. For a moment there, I thought you said the Colonel was by himself. But now I see he had his personal photographer with him. :-)

  4. Why do these military types look so impressive. How would he look in modern times?

  5. Ha, ha, to Reveunner. I at first read "....Bust of the colonel. By himself." Thought at first he had a hobby of sculpting.

  6. It is difficult to photograph through a glass window,

  7. It was a great series of the museum. I really liked the wooden table.

    Have a wonderful day!

  9. Very impressive, William. Having missed a lot, I Googled Col. By and learned soooo much. Also Googled Ottawa to see how it got that name when it changed. All very interesting! And I feel a bit smarter, a feeling I'll take any day.

  10. @Jen: thanks!

    @Bill: next time I'm in there it's with a digital camera, and no need for a flash.

    @Tomas: I'll photograph him again, and in profile too.

    @Halcyon: he seems to be beaming!

    @Revrunner: hah!

    @Peter: a bit more down to earth.

    @Pat: I can see that one too!

    @Marianne: it can present challenges.

    @VP: he seems quite benign.

    @Tamago: thanks!

    @Grace: he does.

    @Kittie: a pleasure to see you back and about!

  11. I don't visit enough museums. Gotta do a better job.

  12. So splendid white, I wonder which stone this is... is it stone?

    ReplyDelete
  13. They wore some pretty fancy clothes.

    ReplyDelete
  14. His white bust is well placed against a dark wood background.

  15. @Tex: and he seems annoyed.

    @Birdman: I can never get enough of museums.

    @Karl: Marble, I think.

    @Sharon: definitely!

    @Red: they certainly did.

    @EG: he certainly does stand out.

  16. Nice bust of Colonel By, it's a pity of the flash.

  17. It's the lambchop sideburns that, in this case, make the man. By the way, do you know why they call this a "bust"? I know a bust when I see one and this ain't it! Heh, heh!

  18. Of course he belongs there to be seen.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Around here, when someone mentions "The Colonel," it's usually Colonel Sanders....

    ReplyDelete
  20. Stern looking. But then I guess that's normal. For a colonel.

    ReplyDelete
  21. It is such an odd name! I wonder what he would think of the town today?

    ReplyDelete
  22. And so he is: all by himself except for the crowds viewing him!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Why is it I feel I should salute?

    ReplyDelete
  24. A shame they had to change the name of the town. I look forward to seeing more photographs from that museum.

  25. @Jan: better luck next time!

    @Lowell: they are quite standout sideburns!

    @Marleen: it's fitting to have him inside there.

    @Norma: not in this case!

    @Ciel: and an engineer at that.

    @RedPat: I think he'd be happy that the Canal was still there.

    @Cheryl: he's quite the center of attention!

    @Kay: perhaps military members in your family?

    @Mari: I think Ottawa's a more fitting name.

    @Randy: thanks!

    @Lois: he seems to specialize in it.

  26. Love how busts look as if they'll speak at any moment.
