A word of warning, however - if either the Mexican military or the US Border Patrol knows that you are taking photos of them, they will confiscate them.
Been there, gotten the lectures.
Well Pirate John , that's what I figured too. So I asked permission first. Twice just to be sure.And took two shots.
Then I crossed the street to one of the AK toting soldiers and suggested we take the gun to the river and "make it talk" and "pop off a few" .
Either this guy knew no English or thought I was a loco gringo, either way I didn't get to hear or fire the gun.
It seems that enough time has passed that the guys were little more relaxed.
I wouldn't joke around with the U.S. guards though. Way seriuos on that side of the bridge.
