lol! I know I'm such a hypocrite because I am so against them but he looks so amazing in almost every picture with one. And the Beatles smoked like chimneys, let's be honest. Unfortunately, it wasn't for the best....:-(George...

Pretty darn cool. I love it, though that particular picture (as ICONIC as it is) has never been a favorite. Still, I love this...

It's interesting to note, for me, because I noticed this instantly when I saw a different shot of the same day on the cover of Rolling Stone back in December. There was always a penetrating, deep, and slightly sad look in John's eyes but this look is almost like he's giving us his very last goodbye through his eyes.
Yes, I fully understand what you mean, as I had the same feeling when I saw the picture for the very first time .

In most of the last pictures of 1980 John looked happy and relaxed, but in this one he looks tensed and there is some kind of strange sadness in his eyes. Still, I'll like this shot, especially because of his "teddy boy" haircut

I concede defeat AppleScruff! I thought I could picspam, but you are THE QUEEN! Sorry, I have not been online much lately....lost my job, water shut off this morning, electric going soon...**sigh** sorry, I'm not in very cheery mood, so please forgive me if I am absent from the board for awhile. I have to knuckle down or else my three cats will be out on the street, turning tricks ;-) (NO not THOSE kind of tricks...you know; 'sit', 'roll-over', 'shake a paw', 'meow!'...)

I agree. I love that photo session, though, as I think he looked really beautiful. I wonder if I am looking at the pictures through the eyes of someone who already knows what eventually was to happen. Perhaps that has tainted it a bit, though I have to say that I observed that about these pics without knowing the time/date/place of these sessions. It's a bit eerie, but still...great, great picture.

lol! "Concede defeat?" I wasn't competing with you silly 4iiiis! I LOVE all your threads and posts. You inspired me is all. I would much rather lay dormant and read other people's threads and now I am so into making threads and posting. Thank you.

I am so sorry about your job. A wonderful friend of mine recently lost his job as well and he feels very lost right now. But I keep telling him that, for many people, these times are so unpredictable and scary and it isn't easy keeping your chin up but trying to is the way to go without really losing your mind. I hope for BOTH of you that things come to fruition soon. I hope to see you on here again.
