John leaving the lions

Photo by Lawrence Warren (posted with his permission)


Lawrence Warren snapped this photo of John Lennon walking away on November 30, 1980.   He used a 110 camera (remember those?), so it didn't turn out the best -- BUT it is a photo of John and so it is still amazing.   

Here is what Lawrence had to say about his memory of John that day:

I took this picture of John on the last day of November 1980..as he was dodging fans outside the Dakota....I was on my way overseas with the USAf..only 19 then...now 60 ? Sure do fly....met Johnny Ace a few times but I thought you might like this shot....none of us knew what was on the way in 8 days .....it took me 40 years to find this picture...me and my late mom spoke to him for a few minutes as he was walking up 72nd street...had a laugh...then he said gotta run...the lions are out !...it still kills me to this day...not much of a shot but ...it was..well, then.
