Los Angeles, 1951.
" I learned that just beneath the surface there’s another world, and still different worlds as you dig deeper. I knew it as a kid, but I couldn’t find the proof. It was just a kind of feeling. There is goodness in blue skies and flowers, but another force—a wild pain and decay—also accompanies everything. "

This is a unique photo of a serial killer on the prowl, long before his capture.
It was taken in the summer of 1974, on the day Bundy abducted two women from the Lake Sammamish park in the photo to rape, torture and kill them.
Bundy was accidentally photographed sitting in his Volkswagen parked under a tree, right where he had tried to lure a different girl earlier. She trusted her instincts and evaded him. Later she was able to describe the car and the location to the investigators; in a stroke of luck, they located an accidental snapshot of the car on that very day.
Shockingly and disappointingly, his license plate had been obscured by a police patrol car - the troopers were there because of a drunken biker gang, and traffic had been blocked due to the incident for a while, cutting off Bundy’s way out. Bundy appears to be waiting for the road to clear, sitting inside the car on a hot day. The photographer had been taking a snapshot of the police intervention, and unknowingly caught the man inside the car instead.
Shortly before the execution Bundy saw the photo. He quickly started denying that it showed his car - but Detective Keppel, who interviewed him in his death row cell to catch some last-moment information, did not pay much attention to Bundy’s denials; instead, he noticed that the killer immediately recognized the photo and the place, and rather than wonder about it for even a second, he nervously rattled out the reasons why there “had to be many light colored VW bugs” in the park on that day.
Years later, Keppel said: “If it was possible to raise his stress level at that point, I could tell the photograph did. He attacked the evidence like the attorney he had always wanted to be.”

Awe god has identity issues. How cute.
" I quit smoking in December. I’m really depressed about it. I love smoking, I love fire, I miss lighting cigarettes. I like the whole thing about it, to me it turns into the artist’s life, and now people like Bloomberg have made animals out of smokers, and they think that if they stop smoking everyone will live forever.
