The images in the San Diego series represent a major turning point in my life and artistic growth. In 2009 Gloria, my wife and I went to San Diego. She was there for a conference and I accompanied her. Prior to the trip, I was at a stand still with my photography and was struggling with the direction I was headed. Gloria and I were also feeling distant from each other and needed to re-connect. San Diego provided the perfect opportunity to break our routine and enjoy each other. It also allowed me to experiment with some concepts, compositions and techniques I had been eager to try. The result of the San Diego trip was a rebirth of sorts. Gloria and I came away feeling refreshed and in love and my photographs developed along a path that had me excited to where it was headed.
