The Advocate


Though I live 5 miles from the Golden Gate bridge I often wake up to the sound of the foghorns. Whenever possible, I head to the coast with my camera, set it up and join the cacophony of the Bay. The foghorns are an old technology, yet there are 19 functioning foghorns in the San Francisco Bay that (alongside GPS) steer ships from the cliffsides, outcroppings, and pillars of the bridge. In addition, ships traveling in and out have their own sounds. In adding my voice, I am making a small contribution to the larger forces of commerce and natural beauty that define the Bay, and confounding the constant stream of nature-lovers and tourists of the Presidio.
