Bill and I decided that a local road trip would be on the agenda.  A trip to Hannibal Missouri, we’d take The Great River Road in Illinois north and cross back into Missouri near Hannibal and follow the river on the Missouri side south to St. Louis. 

Gas, water, DSLR, extra batteries, 35mm SLR loaded with black and white film.  The maiden voyage to begin the Missouri Black and White Old School Film Camera Project was being launched.

We crossed over to Illinois and jumped on Route 3 to head over to the Great River Road.  In Brooklyn IL on Route 3 we discovered the construction site for the New Mississippi River Bridge (to connect Missouri @ St. Louis and Illinois @ Brooklyn). 

First Stop: New Mississippi River Bridge, Brooklyn IL (all photos taken with DSLR and through post production changed to Black and White):
