Reflection in Central Park

How does one appear to lose 25 lbs in a day? Look at yourself in the funhouse mirror OR in my case, stand in front of one of the buildings at the Chanel Mobile Art exhibition in Central Park. The people on the right are waiting for their turn to go into the pod-like exhibition tent.

So when were you at your slimmest or heaviest?

très amusant cet auto-portrait ;o). Cela fait penser dans les fêtes foraines avec les miroirs déformants

this very funny self-portrait ;o). This suggests the fairgrounds with trick mirrors

I see a hint of Munch here, Ming!

valeria said...

Oh, talking about weight. Slimmest and heaviest? Definitely before and after pregnancy. :)

Slimmest at age 20, Heaviest at age 22 right after having a baby!

How's the weather there, Ming? Its only 25 degrees in Mineeapolis right now!

That's the way to do it, Ming - eat what you like and then visit this exhibition.

I never gain weight - too active, too neurotic (!) - except once, when I was 20 and 21 and living in Los Angeles and ate food I'd never known before... then I put on weight.

Ming,
There is no way I am discussing my present situation here on the blogosphere. Suffice it to say I regret not getting a handle on it before Paris!!! I am off to NYC to photograph myself in this mirrored wall-ha I am still so envious that you got to see it. Have you gone in yet?

How do you get tickets for this exhibit? Until when is it shown?
Please let me know, I need your help.

The day after a salty meal is when I feel the chunkiest. But I have fond memories... and sometimes an onion breath - not romantic huh!

Alexa said...

Thinnest -- in my twenties.
Heaviest -- nine and a half months pregnant!
(I would recognize you in this reflection, ming)
Good shot!

Great photo, and of course, once again, your identity remain a mystery.

Awesome photo!

Heaviest - summer after my freshman year of college. Definitely put on about fifteen pounds or so.

Slimmest - Christmas of my second year in college. I transferred from my original school to a school in the Bible Belt and found the whole experience just awful. I think I dropped about 30 pounds and looked far too thin because of it!

i used to be a lot heavier than i am, but i want to get into better shape. i'd like to push myself as far as i can to see how good in shape i can physically get. ha, we'll see when that happens.

I like reflections especially when they are distorted.

I hate to stand in lines... The reflection was more fun than standing in a line!

One more reason I need to go visit this exhibition.

Man, I love skinny mirrors! Wish I had one right now.

God's Rock Angel said...

I was my skinniest at about 13 - I was about 4-5 stone (not good I'm sure I was anorexia by accident!)

Now I'm 10 stone! (Thats about 140lbs I think!)
