This site is addictive! This is the link to a live webcam that runs 24/7 at the legendary Abbey Road crossing in London where the Beatles were photographed for their final recorded album. Sometimes, like tonight, I just put it up in the corner of my computer screen and watch and listen in on a tiny but famous little corner of the world that I'll never see in person.
During the day, it's fun to watch fans and tourists risk being killed by traffic to pose in the crossing for photographers. As I write this, though, it's 3:30 AM in London and raining pretty hard. Not too much traffic this time of night although I just saw a doubledecker bus go by. Do those things run all night? A little while ago, a man came walking by in formalwear with a flower in his lapel getting soaked. On his way home from a late party, perhaps? My mind makes up stories for all of the folks and cars I see through this literal little window on the world. Try it!
