I shot Buffalo Bill!05/04/2013 - 8:52 PM
Colonel William F. Coby, known as "Buffalo Bill", prominent figure of the Far West had come with a travelling circus to the shores of Europe, at a time in his life (1891). He employed local people too and on the grounds of his performed show a statue was raised for him in 2006.
I've found the statue by accident, when visiting a friend. I asked him about the statue but he wasn't aware of who the statue was about nor he had bothered to shoot it. I shot it during a late evening, to honour Colonel's Far-West origins. I've found about whom I had shot, just today, when I read the plaque placed near the fountations of the sculpture in broad daylight.
