Like many people, I have an innate fascination with international borders --  what they represent and what they separate. Perhaps driving across the border into Mexico at dusk for a scenic drive isn't the best idea, but I have had worse.  These images were collected through an evening in March 2013 across the US border at Douglas, AZ. Once across the border, I took off rambling through......read more
