My Beatles related / Abbey Road photos

August 18 - 22, 2008

Two weeks ago a lifelong dream came to fruition. I walked across the most famous cross walk in the world: Abbey Road. Abbey Road is located in a section of London called St. John's Wood. To get there I took the Tube and listened to side one of the album names after the street. While sitting there I took pictures and listened to side two. Once "Her Majestry" was over I listened to "Great Gig In the Sky" - the Pink Floyd classic from Dark Side of the Moon - an album also recorded at Abbey Road. It was an amazing day.

Here are the photos from that day and I also included a few shots from 3 Savile Row - site of the Beatles "Rooftop Concert."

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but this is ridiculous. Here's few of my favorite Abbey Road "covers."
