Sweet Dreams | Scripps Pier, La Jolla

This whole year has a been a bit like a weird dream where you feel like you're stuck but can't get out. I've been doing very little shooting these past few months (Mar to May) due to the stay-at-home order and the days have blurred together. But as restrictions have eased, I'm slowly easing my way back into photographing.

While things have gone a bit crazy with the pandemic, we've had this amazing bloom of bioluminescent algae off the coast of San Diego. It's an incredible sight to behold where the waves just glow an electric blue. It's like a wonderful sweet dream, in contrast to everything else.

About the Prints

Edition of 50. Available in the following sizes:

28 x 28 inches

36 x 36 inches

Medium: Archival pigment print with acrylic facemount


This is a pigment print where the front has been directly mounted with an adhesive to a sheet of ultra clear, scratch resistant, and non-reflective acrylic glass. This process is known as face mounting. The acrylic captures light internally resulting in a display with incredible visual depth and vibrancy. With proper lighting, the acrylic print will appear to be back illuminated with the light emanating from the image itself. The print comes ready to hang with a hidden mount on the back that floats the print off the wall.

Please allow 4-5 weeks for production and delivery of your print. The prices include U.S. shipping, please contact me for international rates.
