I see dead people.
Actually I write about them. Maybe too much. You see, the other day I was doing some research on the fictitious town for my latest novel. I’d visited the intended site several months ago but still had to plot out the layout which Google Maps is really helpful in that way. As I added streets, placed markers for various locations, I added a few people icons to mark where dead bodies were located. Then, for kicks and giggles, I switched out to Google Map’s street view and “drove” beside the first dead body.
And this is what I saw:
There in the white area (see me in the section below? The yellow figure, looking at the light blue figure, which is the dead body marker.) you might be able to pick out a face. Can’t quite see it? Take a look at the image below where I traced it.
So I did it again, just to see if I was imagining it.
The picture on the left highlights the face I saw with that white rectangle. The one on the right, because the tracing didn’t work as well as the first one, I pointed to what I saw so maybe you can see it too. The big arrow points to what I call a “park ranger’s hat”. The line just below, to the eyes, then nose and finally lips. See it? Triple freaky!
So yeah. This is definitely a good place for a dead body. Don’t you agree?
Until next week, have a freak-tabulous weekend, folks!
