Yes... Blondes really do have more fun.
I thought without seeing your name that it felt like your work. Great image!

I do hope that's a good thing?... as I have spent a long time developing a look/feel/brand to my imagery.

Absolutely. Maybe it's luck of the draw, I'm not super active, but every image of yours that I can recall (going back a few years now or more) has made an impression on me. There seems to be a certain quality to the light in your images--the way it compliments your subjects... Plus the toning just speaks to me. It doesn't overpower your images, but it signals something in me, and leaves me transfixed.

I hope that came out as intended. I could try and go on but I've had a long and exhausting day!

But I do really love seeing your images. Sorry I didn't respond sooner.

Many thanks for your kind comments and subsequent vote of confidence.

Your thoughts I'm pleased to say... do in fact match up with that of others, whom have mentioned this to me, both here on the forum and elsewhere.

So perhaps I've got my branding right... just wish my clients were a little more observant as you.

We used to have a round barn in Fulton County, Illinois. Before we moved here over 35 years ago, we traveled here several times, and once while passing that barn in a car driven by a local we were treated to the following very brief story:

"That's the barn where that old farmer died. He couldn't find a corner where he could take a pee."

There's a famous cylindrical barn in western Mass, built by the Shakers. It's strengths and weaknesses were discussed in a few back-and-forth posts maybe two or three years ago. One bother = every board in the roof, or nearly every one, must be ripped down its length to fit with the possibility of a great deal of waste lumber. If the sheathing on the roof is laid cross-wise rather than peak-to-eaves, then every piece must be angle cut at the end to fit properly (only one end for most pieces as you automatically get two correctly angled ends with one cut). Theoretically the vertical boards forming the walls should be bevel-ripped down their length on each side for a perfect fit, but in practice such tight fitting of adjacent planks in the walls of a barn is unnecessary. If the wall planking is laid horizontally, every board must be bent like those that go into the hull of a wooden boat/ship. The horizontal members to which the wall planking is nailed should have a circular outer shape, which means massive timbers and a real bother cutting if you're using hand tools. A cylindrical barn takes a lot more complex carpentry than a boxy one, which explains why such structures are uncommon or rare, stand out as unusual and become landmarks

This round barn is located in Centre Hall, Pennsylvania and was built in 1910. The only other one in PA is located near Gettysburg.
