The border

Where: Off Old Highway 80, near Jacumba, California

When: May 2010

As I shot photos of the fence separating the United States from Mexico, a Border Patrol agent drove by on the highway behind me. I waved as he went past. He gave me a long look but didn't feel the need to stop and ask me why I was taking pictures.

At a time when some law enforcement people seem to think anybody with a camera is up to no good, especially in such a potentially sensitive place, that was refreshing.
