Over the weekend i spent a lot of time getting screen capures from the pre show film from Paul’s ‘The space within US’ dvd, the above photo is the first of many i’ll be posting over the next couple of days.
For the admireres of Paul’s belly this capture is gold as it shows Paul’s oblique muscles in all their FAB glory, this is the curved muscle you can see just above the line of his swimmers .. SWOON-A-ROONY!
I mean really, as if we needed any further reason to love him ..
As far as i can work out this is the order of sequence of Photo’s taken of John leaving the Dakota at around 5.30pm on December the 8th 1980. After i published that dark photo a week or so ago of John leaving the Dakota, readers of my blog asked if i had any others, so here i’ve gathered all the photo’s that have surfaced so far and i’ve placed them in the sequence that looks correct to me. I do have many other photo’s of John taken earlier in the day but i’ll save those for a later post.
PHOTO 3 + 4:
John is turning towards the car, any idea’s what John has in his hands beside the pen?, looks to me like he may have signed another autograph, perhaps a book or a piece of paper, the other item in his hand has me stumped, to me it looks like a cassette walkman, the B/W version of the photo gives a little more detail of John, but not of the items in his hand.
PHOTO 5 + 6 + 7:
These three photo’s are the same but each one is slightly zoomed in, here in photo six you can see John has reached the car. I have to wonder just how many people were around at this time, i always assumed it was only Paul Goresh and *** but maybe there were more, it’s amazing we’ve never heard from them.
This photo has only recently surfaced, the story go’s that Paul Goresh the fan who took the last photo’s of John as he was leaving the Dakota on Decemeber 8th had one photo that didnt come out, i think the flash may have failed, but recently with the advent of Photoshop programs someone had a play around with the photo and was able to bring out John’s image, being a bit of an expert (he say’s humbley) on John in 1980 i’m almost 100% certain that this photo actually is from the late afternoon of December the 8th.
