    i love it! this photo was taken by one of my friends. i was there, waiting by paul’s gate. i just looked in my diary and it says wednesday, september 6th. there is at least one other photo from that moment, i have it. he was wearing the same kaftan and cape the next day, when i took two photos of him as he left emi. he did a little dance for me! but of course my cheap copy of an instamatic didn’t get it. but i do have two photos – one has a blurry arm!

    “follow that rainbow!!!”
    this must be afternoon pre-game/warm-up at Paul’s Pot Parlour before venturing into the officially stern work domain(EMI) just down the street.
    Anyway, awesome candid capture of a very rare flower(long-stemmed LennonBlossom)…
    THANK YOU!!!

    i am sorting my photo collection. it’s mostly john, and there’s some pretty amazing stuff – all taken by my friends. so… unfortunately i can’t share them! but i do think of you guys while i’m looking at them. it’s a shame most of these photos will disappear (in the trash?) once these people are gone “upstairs”. i still dream of putting together a photo book with many of these photos, with the girls’ permission, of course, but given the amount of time it’s taking me to finish my own book, i may go “upstairs” myself before i accomplish that!

    Thanks for digging up these gems Lizzie!

    hi jorge, i didn’t dig up this gem… i’ve had a print of it since 1967 but i don’t scan and share photos taken by my friends, unless they authorize me to do so. some of these photos “appear” on the internet now and again because we used to make copies for our friends, their friends, friends of their friends, etc. at no charge. people scan them and share – sometimes putting their own watermark all over them.

    I hope you (and I) don’t go “upstairs,” for a long, long time Lizzie! :-)

    …I’m wondering if we’re going to need a chauffeur…

    Naw Kwai, you won’t need anything there, it is not only sky…………………………

    Strange to think I’ve actually stood there, but 40 years or so too late!

  11. Lizzie says:

    well, pete, i have no plans of going upstairs anytime soon and i’m sure neither do you! and mark – i’ve been there many times since the 60’s myself. this time in march i went to abbey road more than once and hadn’t made it to cav ave, but a very kind friend drove me there, so i did get to see it after all. many memories! (have i mentioned i hate cold weather? it’s something like 14 celsius here in rio – this is freezing for us!)
