The land was a green slice, sandwiched between the blue sky and the rippled blue water of the estuary. The harbor at Mazatlán as seen from the deck of a cruise ship. A navigation buoy seemed too large for the rowboat on shore. View all

The fence was incomplete. Where it ended, a test became possible. I took two shots of Alcatraz. This one obscured by the new fence.

An older test section for a different style of anti-jump fence. The new anti-jump fence was installed directly adjacent to the sidewalk.
