Unfortunately, I don't have much information to go by, but I'll do my best.

I believe the time period was late 70s, perhaps early 80s.

The source was a thick book full of photos taken by Linda, mostly of Paul and family photos.  There may have been some music notation also.

The photo was of Paul sitting or leaning against a fence, wearing a complete cowboy type outfit or equestrian suit -- very extreme in appearance mostly white and precious, like a children's cowboy get-up. (There might have been a lot of tassles and frills & fringe and stuff, too.)

What I found priceless about the photo besides the costume was Paul's expression on his face:  he looks like a miserable little boy -- miserable because he has to be all gussied up posing for a photo session.  I've rarely seen Paul look anything other than mellow, relaxed, warm, charismatic.

I unfortunately have never seen this picture.  Now that you have mentioned it, I really want to.  a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I've also been reminded of this one now:

I'm not into Cowboys, but for Paul I make an exception.  heart

Thanks.  I've also seen Paul later in the 70s with a moustache and a cowboy hat -- part of a TV show or something.

It could well be; but I can't remember the book cover.  Somehow, though, I have a dim memory of the cover having more white in it and not being from a previously photo (as this one is).

I want that book!  I love the pictures with his fist baby girl.  This one is cute too:

Omg, me too! I don't know why, but babies with brown hair are just so much cuter to me than other babies. Even if they're not actually all that cute of a baby, them having brown hair makes up for their face. I love this picture, Paul is seriously the cutest ever.

For some reason this reminds me of Stevie Rik's impersonation of Paul McCartney lol.

You gals with a crush on Paul would love another rare photo I recall (but alas cannot find) which Linda took of him, early morning he's just woken up, sitting up on the edge of the bed, she's aiming the camera at his bare back and he's buck naked, and he's leaning his head down with his arms in a position that looks to me like he must be putting in contact lenses.

Did/Does Paul wear contact lenses?

I know. This makes me want to make some Linda McCartney photo book inquiries at the library.
