I have always been fascinated with grain elevators and in fact, I wrote and photographed a story titled “Skyscrapers of the Prairie” for Oklahoma Living Magazine. I had photographed this grain elevator for that story back in 2015, but the photo did not make the final edit. Recently I was back in El Reno with my Toyo View VX-125 large format film camera and my new-to-me Nikkor-W 300mm F5.6 lens – a huge hunk of glass to hang from the front of my camera. I thought the large format film would be a great medium to show the details of this photo. Seeing a photo like this on the web just doesn’t do it justice. When fully magnified, or printed large, you can see tiny details such as the rivets in the trailer to the right.
