    Top photo was taken by me. September 6th, 1967. It’s in my book.

    I had the feeling that this was one of your photos! You were able to capture them in day to day activity. No poses, no photo shoots, just living life, as natural and real as it can get. Your photos and stories enable us to relive these moments with you. It is as if we were there with you.

    Thanks to Lizzie and to Tammy for sharing them all with us!

    Cheers from Canada

    Ya see, folks…
    Ya don’t have to capture magic with a Kodak Instamatic 110…
    but, the way Lizzie does it, you just may want to!
    Thanks, Bet.
    Happy Olympics!

    Loving John’s jacket

    I can’t imagine what it would feel like to see a photo of a famous person that I idolize and to say, “I took that photo”. A tiny moment in the day of a life, but also a bond between photographer and subject, even if the subject is barely aware (or not at all). A moment captured for the world to experience, nearly half a century later (and for many more years to come). I know you did it for yourself Lizzie, but all of us are better off for your efforts. Thank you.

    Hello everybody! I was so busy with my translation (I am a consultant to a major Beatle event which will open in São Paulo this month) I didn’t see your comments from yesterday. Thank you all! Each and every photo I took is special to me. The fact that one of “them” is looking right at me at that split second gives me chills (to this day!), especially when it’s John (like you didn’t know this already…). Looking at the photos in my book, with the AMAZING quality my designer was able to bring out in them, makes me very proud. If the Universe made this amazing experience happen in my life, I feel it’s my duty to share it with everyone else who couldn’t be there – for a million reasons. Don’t think I take any of it for granted. I know how darned lucky I was! Love, love, love. <3

    By the way, you might have noticed that the jacket is the one from Magical Mystery Tour! I took two more photos that night. On one of them John did a little dance for me, which my cheap Boots copy of an Instamatic of course didn’t get, but I do remember!

    I love flipping through the pages of your book and looking at your photographs, Lizzie. Alas, I do not read Portuguese, so I am meanwhile diligently awaiting your English translation.
    Thank you so much for all your effort and time spent. I truly live this period vicariously through you.

  10. Lizzie says:

    Thank you, Since! The response to my book has been amazing. I so want my English-speaking friends to read it too! My NY attorney is trying to find a publisher for the English version. I confess I haven’t touched the translation in a long time, but I will, very soon.

  11. Tammy says:

    Yes, thanks Lizzie. I get ‘Photo whirl’ in my head and I don’t know who’s who. If I ever forget to credit, please step up and set that right. x

  12. Lizzie says:

    Don’t you worry, Miss Tammy! If there’s ever a photo of mine or of someone I know, I’ll let you all in on who took it and details if I have them. 18º and rain in Rio de Janeiro: we’re definitely freezing! (please don’t laugh, people used to REAL cold weather). Hope you’re well! x

    Lizzie why are the Summer Olympics being held in the winter.

  14. Nick D. says:

    I love Lizzie’s book. Even though I cannot read the text, her photos speak for themselves. I hope someday there will be an English version but for now, I will enjoy your lovely photos. Thank you Lizzie for all your hard work in getting your book published. XOXOXO

  15. Lizzie says:

    MarkC – I have no idea.

  16. Lizzie says:

    Thank you so much, NickD! I have been getting such amazing response, you have no idea, it’s really touching! People who can read Portuguese tell me how close they felt to the boys reading my diaries. Well, the photos do speak for themselves, but I will be a very happy overweight old lady (or “the eternal teenager”, as a close friend calls me…) when I see my book published in English being read by all of you. On a totally different note, my almost 87 year-old mother says I will never lose weight, because I have so many friends and they are always inviting me out to parties and restaurants! I guess I prefer being a fat popular chick than a lonely skinny one, but I have to say I would love to lose weight. Maybe if I move to Mars, where there are no Starbucks (am I sure?) and cupcakes, red velvet cakes, KitKats and brownies with Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream… I have just finished my 14-page translation. My eyes are fried! I’m off to the street – I need to see human beings. xx’s to all!
