{the time i climbed a 90-foot grain elevator}

5 Apr

do you know what a grain elevator is?!  i didn’t until the time i was visiting indiana, fotographing a wedding… a very special wedding. my cousin, M married his lady, E and and her family has a farm – they are bonafide farmers! experiencing their farm first hand was such an absolute joy!  mister T is one proud owner, and he knows his farm in and out.  from hydraulic garage doors to magic hoses to ceiling snow, the place is just loaded with charm that encourage memories for years.

the grain elevator i walked up looks nothing like the ones in the wikipedia fotos… this was basically a giant ladder… and i kind of have this phobia of heights, and also a phobia of ladders – so this was a big feat for me! Continue reading
