Border Field State Park, where Mexico meets the United States For the second time in my life, I visited Border Field State Park, where there is a fence that goes out into the ocean separating Mexico and the United States. (But you cannot cross the border here) I wanted to get a good artistic photo of the fence and the ocean and the city of Tijuana on the other side of the fence, and I may have. I have yet to sort through those. What I wanted to get online immediately was this photo. In terms of technical aspects of photography, it's one of the worst photos I've ever posted. But I don't care. I wanted to share what I found to be the best part of the visit to the park. Many people on the Mexico side of the fence do pretty much what the Americans do. They hang out, they relax, they snap photos, they look at the ocean, and yes, they smile and wave to the people on the other side of the border. It really hit me how strange it is that an imaginary line in the earth changes so much, especially when people in both places often are much the same.
