The sudden onset of warm weather is having a strange effect on the Bernal Heights ecosystem. (Cue: Koyaanisqatsi)
Anyone have any idea what the hell it’s doing there?
And/or, when do the ad-hoc ragtime hilltop sing-alongs begin? Because apparently, that kind of thing is encouraged:
UPDATE, 9:30 PM: Our local pianists are rising to the challenge. Neighbor Heinz reports:
Here is a picture taken today of a lady playing the piano on top of Bernal Hill.. She was playing in front of a small crowd of about 8 -12 people.. There was also another gentleman that played before her.
And check this out! Neighbor Christopher made a movie of someone performing the Star Wars theme!
Neighbor Ros captured another pianist in action at sunset:
Looks like the same pianist, but @ddotkdot captured this stunner:
UPDATE 2 (28 June)
Well, that didn’t take long. Neighbor Jonathan shows us that the Bernal Piano was tagged with graffiti overnight:
But still, the band plays on. Neighbor Mike comments:
Tagging has no impact on the performance of the instrument. It actually adds character to the piano, in my opinion. I got a text about the piano yesterday and got to play a little today in the hot sun!
