Oddities: On the Beach
I drive west to Ocean Beach on this gray San Francisco afternoon to see “Buffalo Bill and the Indians On the Beach,” created by artist/impresario Thom Ross. A long line in the sand, ranging from the Cliff House south towards Fort Funston. The backdrop of San Francisco’s Sunset District years away, dim in the fog. The dark gray-green ocean behind them. A strange panorama of headdresses, weapons, painted faces, costumes, steeds. Curiously compelling.
