I love looking at this photo. For one thing, I have a thing about borders. I’m fascinating where one place begins and another ends.
Perhaps, that is because I was born on the border, at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Hospital in Kittery, Maine. This is right on the Piscataqua River which divides the states of Maine and NH. Every once in a while there is the promise of a legal battle to redraw the map so that the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard is in Portsmouth, NH. Essentially if that ever happened, would that then mean my birth certificate and passport would have to be reissued?
This is on the border of South Dakota and Wyoming and in the distance is the state of Nebraska. But even if it wasn’t about borders, I would like this photo.
