In April of 2011 the River Region Photography Association displayed photos in the Hart-Stepp House, one of the oldest houses west of the Mississippi River. The theme of this exhibit was "Life on the Mississippi." Here are the photos that I displayed, plus a few others. I hope you enjoy them. Email me at dbuckenmyer@mindspring.com if you would like to purchase any of them.
