killer's photos

These are some pretty pictures from the 70's. But you loook at them differently when you know that these are also some photos out of of dozens found in a storage locker rented by serial killer Rodney Alcala. Police thinks that some of the people in the photos might be possible victims and are asking for public help in identifying them.

Incarcerated in 1979, Alcala has been convicted for 5 murders but is suspected for many more. He used to ask women to pose for him, passing as a fashion photographer.

I've always been interested in serial killers... it's a subject that captivates me and scares me at the same time. Seeing these photos is a little bit disturbing both because it makes the killer appear more human and artistically engaged and because I might be looking at portraits of women smiling just before they were brutally murdered. And even for those that weren't, it's still frightening to have been happily unaware so close to such a deeply disturbed individual.

These pictures offer an interesting but unnerving view from behind the camera of what the serial killer was looking for at that time...

Love England - part I


I feel like me moving to England didn't really show on my blog so here's some bits and pieces that I love about it. These are some photos that I took at Arley Hall, Gawsworth Hall and Adlington Hall. Red bricks, rambling roses and green green grass...

and now...ladies and gentleman...

I love the song... love the video... love Patricia Kaas...

I discovered this video by accident and was really surprised that she starred in a film. I had to see it.
'And now...ladies and gentleman' (2002) is a beautiful artistic work, tied together by Patricia Kaas's jazzy vocals. It's a story of life and romance, of two people crossing their paths at a moment in time that only European cinema can bring.
The magic of this film is in the intimate atmosphere generated by the gradual discovery of two somewhat lost individuals which is brilliantly supported by the nightclub jazz and Patricia's languid voice. A must have soundtrack!

away and back


Hey guys... Vagabond sister's been away for a few days, taking her vagabond ways to the mesmerizing Dubai... where everything is so new and big and shiny... I felt the need to compensate with these vintage inspired photos :)
I love traveling and I'm already dreaming about the next time I'm gonna jump in the plane for a new destination!

only by the night


These photos have such a late at night in the city atmosphere... I miss that...

They look like a perfect setting for a scene from Haruki Murakami's novels. :)
