The waters of the Mississippi River continue to rise into June. This flood may surpass the flood of 1993. The village of Elsah is under water with many of the homes sand bagged—but looking at the village many buildings have just been left to fend for themselves with the water. The clean up from this over 2 month long flooding will take weeks to clean up. All images shot with a Nikomat 35mm camera with a 50mm lens with Kodak Tri-X 400. Hand processed and scanned on a Nikon LS-4000.
