My Happy Place | Couple at Scripps Pier

Scripps Pier is one of the most photographed landmarks in San Diego and it's always a struggle to come up with a unique image of this subject. I initially tried to exclude the couple in the hammock, but on a whim decided to place them in the center of the frame. Unexpected result, but I'm very happy how the image turned out.

About the Prints

Edition of 50. Available in the following sizes:

24 x 36 inches

30 x 45 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.
