The pull of San Diego is powerful. The weather is the obvious draw, but I think there's something intangible about this town that beckons people. The Duggans are a prime example of being drawn back to this place we call home. A new job took them east, to New Jersey, but they returned less than a year later.
Wading through the cannabis haze and transients to find a clear spot at the end of the pier, I photographed the Duggans' San Diego family portraits at the Ocean Beach pier. The Duggans are old clients of mine, and it was wonderful to welcome them back home.
