Speaker to passengers?

Loudspeaker, just beyond the northern fringe of the Diridon station platform in San Jose. I’m not quite sure of its purpose, since it’s in a place where people aren’t supposed to go.

Shot with the Nikon D70s and the 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 zoom at 46mm, ISO 400, f/9, shutter 1/640 sec. Exposure, contrast, saturation, levels and highlights adjustments in Aperture.


  1. Looks like an emergency siren rather than a loudspeaker to me.

  2. That sounds quite plausible, though it begs the question why they’d put a siren in that particular spot.
