I am REALLY tall today

I was standing on the edge of a dry fountain on the north end of Madison Square Park when I took this photo. I look positively tall here but alas, it was only my shadow.


So if you could choose, would you rather be taller or slimmer?

For some reason you are taller in autumn than during summer!

Since I'm already 5'9 and a woman that tall, I think I'd choose about 5 lbs thinner, thats it. Otherwise, I'm happy with my looks :) Thanks to my parents for good genes!
Have a great weekend, Ming!

Love this, Ming. A beautiful shot.

I'm happy as I am, actually - short and slim, but when I was a kid, all my girlfriends were tall, like models and then I wanted to be tall. Now I'm happy to be petite.

I am quite slim, but I could look better with a few centimeters more...

I'm already slim and I'm 5'9.. I would rather be taller! 6'2 or something like that lol.

Instead of being taller or slimmer (I am quite tall and am often told to gain weight) can I choose to be smarter! Or a better photographer?

I gave you a shout out in my post today - it was a bench shot.

Slimmer, please, please, please! I am 5'2". I can't change that. The slimmer? Oh Ming wave your magic wand.
IlOVE your self portrait. Tall , handsome, devil you are!

usually slimmer people tend to look tall, but I'm pretty tall and I would hate to give up my height, even though I would like to be slimmer. does that make sense?
nice shot Ming!

Alexa said...

This looks just like you!
If I was taller, I WOULD be slimmer. I used to be 5'3" and am now 5'2"—definitely headed in the wrong direction for slim.
