The Missouri Compromise

Day 2.....
Woke at Drew's dads apt. after a very much needed nights rest and headed for St. Clair missouri. We photographed 4 more memorials today and it's been very busy. Drew joined us on our travels and we are now at his apt. in columbia, MO. Todays weather 76 sunny. Couldn't ask for better weather. Best attraction of the day had to be either the fact that we drove past a jesse James wax museum or the worlds largest rocking chair, but we didn't actually get to stop to see those but at least we know they're out there. The capitol building in jefferson, city was pretty amazing. I have to go back in the morning to re shoot do to bad direction of light. Sunrise will be perfect! All is well on the road. It's a very weird feeling when driving. Usually when driving you have this feeling of anticipation like you want the drive to get over and finally reach your destination. It's not like that on this trip. Not when you know just how far you really have to go. It's very relaxing, stress free. Thats it for the day i guess. Signing out.
Time- 1:11 a.m.

Just out and about

It is now 12:50 a.m. and it's time for bed. We've been awake now for 21 hours. What a great day! Signing out.


We made it through springfield. The memorial was in a cemetary that also featured Lincolns Tomb. The weathers great and we get to see our friend Drew. Just entered St. Louis but were just passing through. Jefferson College in Hillsboro, MO is our next stop, then we make our way back up to St. Louis to shoot there and get some sleep.

By the way we just passed by Cardinals Stadium and it smells like poop.

Somebody's got a case of the Mondays.......

But not us!

Early rise. We were up on the road at 4:30 this morning. We arrived in Pekin, IL at 7:00. First shoot went well, with very nice early morning light. With our coffee cups full we head southbond to Springfield, IL.
