The old Chain of Rocks Bridge that carried U.S. Route 66 over the Mississippi River just north of St. Louis.

Taken tonight.

The man you can see in the distance in the top photo was looking for a falcon that he knew nested under the bridge. He was a character, a photographer with an old film camera picked up at a flea market for $20, an ancient 1950s tripod and the appearance of someone who lives pretty rough.

I liked him – I hope he got his shot.
