Crossing Abbey Road

May 17, 2011

Over the weekend Tim showed me the Abbey Road webcam.  And I’ve been obsessively glued to it ever since.  People are constantly (and I mean constantly) recreating the iconic Beatles crossing– one women went back and forth, leaping, at least four times while I watched.  The whole scene is part voyeuristic and part pure joy.  I highly recommend it on this grey rainy day.

Ha ha! I thought ‘Hmmm, let’s have a look’ and no sooner did the page load than two peeps wandered onto the crossing and struck a pose! Love it!

Joyful for the Beatles fans, I’m sure. Irritating for the drivers, most definitely!

when my friends came to visit me in england they went to abbey rd and when they found out there was a webcam, they rang their kids back in australia as they walked across telling them to turn on their computers. the kids were so excited to see them!

When I married my English husband in the UK we lived very near this crossing. We decided to recreate the crossing in out wedding outfits near our house in a similar crossing. I love the finished results.
