Often Imitated, Never Duplicated – Scripps Pier, La Jolla, California

Scripps Pier in La Jolla is a popular place for surfers, researchers and photographers. This composition under the pier has been done countless times. While the composition may look the same, the wind, water and light never remains constant. This is just my humble take on this San Diego landmark.

The original Scripps Pier was built in 1915 and funded by Ellen Browning Scripps. The pier was a means for aquariums and the university labs to acquire clean seawater. A new pier was built in 1988 right next to the aging Scripps Pier, which was later removed.

The official name of the pier is The Scripps Institution of Oceanography Pier, operated by The Scripps Institution of Oceanography and a department of the University of California, San Diego. That’s a little wordy so we locals just called it Scripps Pier.

Happy Travels!
