We gave the four major mayoral candidates the chance to be photographed anywhere they wanted in the city of San Diego. This week, we’re revealing where they wanted to be photographed and why.

Nathan’s pick: By the pier at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

Why did you want to be photographed here?

It’s a place that I come — I live not too far from here — and it’s a place I come and surf and hang out. The beach represents a lot of our culture, a lot of our community. We’re also at a location here at Scripps at UCSD that represents a lot of the innovative spirit of San Diego. So I thought it was the perfect location between our culture and our economy, and then a place that’s important to me personally.
