The disk sleeve of the new Driving Rain album features 28 grainy pictures taken by Sir Paul himself with this tiny Casio watch-camera. The photos were snapped as Sir Paul traveled across the U.S.A. to promote his poetry book, Blackbird Singing. Shots of dogs and people walking down the street and little portraits of Sir Paul and Heather Mills appear in a mosaic of tiny images. There's even a shot Sir Paul managed to snap while being interviewed on American television by Larry King:Sir Paul: "I'm taking a picture of you on my camera watch here, Larry."
Larry King: "What with your watch?"
Sir Paul: "Look at that. Larry King Live! I was doing an interview with some guy and he was playing with one. I said 'What is that, a camera watch?' and I said 'Get me one'. And he did."
