If you've heard of The Beatles (and let's be real, who hasn't), then you are most likely familiar with the group's iconic photograph from the cover of their Abbey Road album; you know, the one where the group's four members are walking on the zebra cross walk in front of the Abbey Road Studios. If you know what we're talking about, then you might just want to be the ultimate tourist and recreate the famous photo with your friends. Here's what you need to do: 

1. Head over to the Abbey Road Studios (3 Abbey Road) with three friends and a photographer.

2. Go over to the zebra crosswalk that is located in front of the studio.

3. Line up in height order with your three friends. 

4. The photographer should distance him or herself from the crosswalk while making sure to stand with a central and clear view of the four figures. 

5. The camera should by viewing the right side of the figures' faces. 

6. In order to master this picture safely, you need to try to stop traffic and tell other pedestrians to wait to walk across (maybe tell them that you will take the same picture for them).

7. The key to getting the picture right is to have the photographer take the photo while you are walking across. It works better than if you try to stop and pose for the picture.

8. Have your photographer snap as many photos as possible so that you can frame the perfect one.
