Feck it, @Joe!

Sandwich board, "Join us at http://www.beatlesbible.com" written on it, turn to camera and wave.

Just bumped into Joe at Abbey Road, he's a nice bloke in real life too :P

Doesn't look like his profile picture though, I thought he would have looked like George Harrison's twin :( Disappointing

(Wait, what? That's a photo of GEORGE? And all this time I thought that was Joe :O)

EDIT: How ignorant of me, I forgot to wish you the best of luck!

Yay! It isn't raining. Looks like a beautiful morning in London.

I see you took the train in. Nice. Wonderful Twitter pictures. Thanks!

EDIT: The crossing cam is archived. Start watching at 10:34:43 for Joe coming around the corner by the bushes. Then he switches cameras and goes by the pole twice to take a picture...continued in next post.

EDIT2: So how this happened. I thought I saw you right there where you are in the last part close to the cam. Then I started kicking myself for not doing a screen capture. Then I saw your Twitter pictures. Then I looked to see if the stream is archived and figured out where you were standing to get the Twitter pics. I used my cell phone to video the video.

EDIT: TheOneBeatleManiac did a better job down thread of capturing the cam video. Thanks!

The stickers all over the pole in your Twitter pic helped jog my thinking and spurred me on to find you in the cam archives video. I could see that the pole had stickers all over it in the cam video.

By the pole on the left hand side of the road, just to the left of the dark van. Joe is partially blocked by the pole, and he has his arms up taking a picture. The picture taken from here looks like one of the pictures you put on Twitter, Joe.

Oh, I see, in the video when you first walk out of view of the cam is when you took the picture of the studio. Then you come back into view and cross the street. Then you turn around and take another picture of the crossing before walking towards the cam where we see you clearly.

Joe, alone on the zebra crossing.
