Default Never understood why this picture is so popular

This picture below appears a lot in newspapers, magazines and internet articles, and I donīt really understand why...
I think itīs very unfair to George, donīt you?

I don't think its that unfair to George considering he's the sexiest looking one in the pic. He look beautiful there.

But honestly, I don't think it matters either way. Just a pic. They had a bunch of shots and this was one that turned out cool so they use it a lot. George is still brilliant whether he's in the front or in the back. His contribution is still the same no matter what position he is in. Great pic! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Now that I look at it.It looks like George's picture was added on to the other 3.It doesn't look right to me.He's too far back.

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">Yeah, I agree. He's got that nice mysterious shine over him. It's a good picture I think.

this pic was done on the 'mad day out', the beatles photo shoot on july 28, 1968. . . here is the link that will explain all. . . the beatles mad day out! . . . it was one of a bunch of photos of which almost all have been published. i don't think the beatles themselves had much say as to what got out in later years, tho i think they would have dissed this as a promo shot because of the odd way george does look. . . but there are a ton of great pics that came out of that day! (i have a huge! poster from the garden that graces the wall above my desk!)
does this help?

They kind of look like the new t-shirts out of the
dogs, real close up of a puppies face with the fish eye lens(Camera lens), makes their faces look really big, just like JP&R in the pic above, George looks mysterious to me in the pic, sexy whatever, no Beatle picture is a bad picture to me

or the other one i always see in dorm rooms of neo-hippies is that long narrow, horizontal black and white one where it's just their profiles. and they're standing really close to each other. it's maybe from the mad day out photos. but again, they look like they're "flying."

i HATE that one.

Am I the only one who has never seen this particular shot before?

It looks like George is p.o'd because the other three got high without him! [img]graemlins/siesta.gif[/img]
