No, we didn't photograph ourselves in the crosswalk. Too much traffic. And yeah, self-consciousness and not wanting to appear like an idiotic tourist (we see so many here where we live) did also play a part.
But there it is, the famous Abbey Road.
Rather than the sidewalk shown on the album cover, I think that Handy was more interested in the studio itself.
I was fascinated by the graffiti. We saw very little graffiti in London, but here was a place where it was allowed and even honored.
This just in time for Mother's Day.
11 am in London was 3 am here? I doubt anyone here saw us.
More of my favorite graffiti.
And more crosswalk views. Here is a great article about the iconic Abbey Road cover photo shoot.
After, we walked around the lovely St. Johns Wood neighborhood a bit, and had a delicious greek lunch.
UPDATE: Just to add this video.
