the guardrails around Hawk Hill in the marin headlands have little holes in them which the wind blows across, turning the set of rails into a giant panpipe. it is an amazing sound. i have heard an installation of pipes built by a french artist, which used a similar technique to harness wind to make a panpipe play.
i am pretty sure that this result was accidental in this case, but the sound is still magical!

just in case anybody was doubting that i am back in my home turf: here i am with the bridge that says "i left my heart in san francisco". about forty minutes after this photo, i was cycling in the marin headlands on a trail which is hiding in the greenery just behind my gesturing fingers.
