How to Set Expires With Try Files

Below is my config file. How can I change the two “if” blocks to
try_files, and still do a 30d expires for static files?

server {
listen 80;
server_name www.joshpearce.org;
client_max_body_size 4M;
access_log /var/log/nginx/localhost.access.log;

    # root of website *exactly*, use '=' for speed
    location = / {
            root /var/www/joshpearce.org;
            index index.php index.html index.htm;
    }
    location / {
            root   /var/www/joshpearce.org;
            index index.php index.html index.htm;
            if (-f $request_filename) {
                    expires 30d;
                    break;
            }
            if (!-e $request_filename) {
                    rewrite ^(.+)$ /index.php?q=$1 last;
            }
    }
    # use: htpasswd - htpwds NewUser NewPassword
    location ^~ /info {
            auth_basic  "Restricted";
            auth_basic_user_file /etc/nginx/htpwds;
            include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
            fastcgi_pass  unix:/usr/local/var/run/php-fpm.sock;
            fastcgi_index index.php;
            fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME 

/var/www/joshpearce.org$fastcgi_script_name;
}
location ~ .php$ {
include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_pass unix:/usr/local/var/run/php-fpm.sock;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME
/var/www/joshpearce.org$fastcgi_script_name;
}

    #error_page  404  /404.html;

}

You do not need this block:

             if (-f $request_filename) {
                     expires 30d;
                     break;
             }

at all, since nginx adds Expires only to existant files.
