A photographer and the photo
There's also a famous one of Ethan Russell taking a picture of the Beatles in front of the door at John Lennon's Tittenhurst Park, which later was to become the cover photo for the "Hey Jude" (aka "The Beatles Again") album.
Notice my enormous instamatic camera there. As you can see, the angle I'm working from is not exactly a good position to take pictures from, as you'll notice in the resulting photo:
Note how short Paul's hair was at the time, it was the shortest hairstyle I'd ever seen him sporting up 'till that time. Of course, a year and a half later I noticed the same hairstyle in the video for "Pipes of Peace", where Paul was portraying two different characters from World War 1. So it's an army haircut.
