The Port of San Diego is a major import location for Dole:
Which reminds me of my wise old grandmother’s pineapple upside-down cake because she used Dole pineapples. That’s neither here nor there, though, but why can’t anyone make a pineapple upside-down cake as good as my wise old grandmother’s?
It’s difficult to get good pictures of operations at the Port of San Diego or the Dole container facility because one has to climb a fence and trespass on the property of the BNSF Railroad, or traipse along a bridge on a very busy Harbor Boulevard. I chose traipsing and, using my 300mm lens, got the above pictures. However, most of my pictures were cruddy since I was dodging cars at the same time I was taking pictures. Here’s one of the cruddy ones:
I like that cruddy one, though. I like all the trucks, I like the tall light poles, and I like the crane.
Although it’s not worthy of using as a picture, as my wise old grandmother might say, “It’s just the basics to start with.” So I started with it, took it to Photoshop CC, and applied various filters to it to make it a work of art. Following are the ones I liked.

My favorite, the Photocopy filter:
