Today is very a special day, because it’s my grandpa’s 90th birthday!
Last summer I had the privilege of photographing him at the Taylor Homestead that has been in my family since 1854. I loved getting the chance to walk around the old farm with him and hear some of his stories from when he lived there.
I have so many fond memories of the farm, and I know my mom, aunts, uncles, siblings and cousins have many as well. It was always a place to let our imaginations run wild, and there have been countless hours of stories that have been created there.
My grandpa is a man of many talents and accomplishments; from photographer, farmer, master gardener, and artist. He has done a lot different things and has done them well. I asked him what his motivation was to try new things, and he said that if something seemed interesting he would just go for it.
Since I can remember, my grandpa has loved to pass on his knowledge to anyone who would listen, and I have learned many valuable things from him.
Happy 90th Birthday Grandpa!
