Ah Paris, it all makes sense now! That's one of those silly Capitaine Louis Renault caps, not a train conductor's after all. And dig that expression on Paul's face.

I have no idea what the photog was going for in that photograph. It's truly silly and strange.

 

It looks to me like they were going for camp French stereotypes - baguettes, berets, Inspector Javert hat, blonde with permanently bent knee... They just needed an accordion and a mime to be complete.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Honestly, it has to be this one.

Paul's hair looks... thin.

John's beard... I don't like beards that much to be honest.

Something about Ringo that makes him awkward.

And George just looking away from the camera. x3

Oh, I got the French stereotypes intent as a whole. I meant that first photo specifically: What exactly was the point of having Paul looking semi-dopily at George? Couldn't Paul have been given his own stupid hat? It's mystifying!

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Maybe it was a photobomb. ;-)

There's something very odd about this picture of John.

I'd forgotten this thread exists. Since it's directly appropriate, a link to my post about the Help! back cover and the Yesterday and Today cover.

Which is a reminder to us all to upload pictures to the site using the attachment option when you are making a post. That way, they stay.

I have never liked this picture-- they all look like zombies. Its usual effect is to make me forget why I ever thought they were good-looking in the first place.

EDIT: I just found the Awkward/Creepy Beatles Photos thread. That would be a better home for this post. @meanmistermustard, could you do the honours?

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 That pic was used for the cover of 'Love Songs' in 1977 but with Paul and Ringo's placement switched due to how big Paul was with Wings. I need to playlist 'Love Songs', one of my favourite albums ever.

@Bongo, see post 7 in this thread. We need to do a little editing of the post to reflect some changes that have been made, but the part about uploading pictures is correct.

I just looked at post 7 again. I think I was just getting tripped up on the statement

Joe: "I've also limited the uploads just to images (jpg, gif or png). Moderators should be able to upload more if necessary (documents, audio files etc)." (see posts 6323 thru to 6345 in the 'Impossible To Derail' thread for the full discussion on this).

Mods can't upload anything extra.

Good lord, they all look ...uncomfortable. Ringo looks bloated tbh...I saw something about wide angle lens so maybe it's being on the edge of the frame that's causing some distortion. There's also his funky eyebrow that looks half-shaved off? a-hard-days-night-ringo-12
