I grew up in southern California and spent a lot of time as a kid in Baja California. Loved it there. Loved the people. When I got out of college I was making a marginal living stringing for local newspapers. None of it paid much but I could work as much or as little as I wanted. If I disappeared for a couple of weeks, no one would notice.

So I scrounged up a couple hundred bucks and 20 rolls of bulk-loaded Tri-x and drove the peninsula. See if I could get people to let me make some pictures.
