Barn Raising – Timelapse

Scott Miller received permission from this Amish community to document a traditional barn raising. He took one photo every 20 seconds via a timer remote on his camera totaling 1600 images. Scott photographed from 7 AM to 5 PM. Even with a lunch break, the amount of work completed over this 10 hour period is amazing!
