Russian Beatles

I present to you The Russian Beatles, found during my recent trip to Portobello.

Today was a pretty rubbish day for me. First, I woke up so late for a shoot I was supposed to be doing at Kensington Roof Gardens, then I decided to snooze when I got back for about 20 mins, I set the alarm on my phone to wake me and then turned off the phone (my old phone allowed me do this) but it didn't work, so I missed a meeting I had scheduled. Then I almost got hit by a CAR en route to a client. Now I'm coming down with a cold!!!! This was not a good day.

At least one thing cheered me up. Check it out here.

Russian Beatles!? Whew...I guess nobody buys Gorbachev and Putin dolls anymore. I think the portraiture order is about right, judging by their input into the Fab Four glory. Wonder who's pictured on the fifth doll.
