Photohunt: Skinny


The photohunt theme this week is skinny. Below is a collage of skinny legs. The girl is me about 35 years ago. I thought I was skinny and wanted to have a better figure. At this point, I'd love to be a whole lot thinner. The birds have very skinny legs and so does the folk art man in the children's herb garden.
Note- I'm editing this after reading early comments. That was me a LONG time ago. I am NOT skinny now. I'm rather substantial, ha.

I hope everyone has a pleasant weekend. You can find out about photohunters at this link -
. You can also find other photohunters at technorati here -

Carver, you were so slim!

Yes, birds have skinny legs, have read they have hollow bones which are light and good for flights.

Have a great weekend!

You looked pretty skinny to me here in that shot. All those other shots are just right for photohunt.

I read the post before this and it make me sad but I hope things will turn out well for you and I hope writing about your experience brought some comfort to you.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Nice to be able to put a face to you as a wonderful blogger, Carver.

As a former sportsman, it amazes me how skinny I was when I competed! So I know how you feel!

mommybytes.com said...

Oh yea, once upon a time, I was that skinny, but still could not fit into those skinny boots (somehow my skinny ended around my thighs). It is a great collage of skinny!

eastcoastlife said...

You are so tall! To us Asians. hehe.... How tall are you?

I like your long legs. I wish I had long legs.

Carver said...

Thanks to all the photohunters for commenting. To answer eastcoast life's question I'm 175.3 cm although 5 ft 9 inches doesn't sound quite so tall, ha. I've actually shrunk a bit and am more like 5'8" at the moment.

Valarie said...

Wow! You were (not implying that you couldn't be now as well) so cute. Definitely skinny. I was not blessed with the "skinny gene." Great collage of photos.

ipanema said...

wow, sexy! i love your skinny photos! :)

Natalie said...

That's a great collection of photos! :)

eastcoastlife said...

Carver, I'm only 163cm tall. At 175cm, I have to look up to you. hehe......

Most Asians are around my height and that's tall in my country.

Lifecruiser said...

Funny how many of us that has been skinny when we're youngER ;-)

You were a cutie - and still are, no matter of weight. Besides that, personally I think it's the persons character that is worth the most, and the heart is a part of that character. So, judging to that, you're a hottie :-)

Carver said...

Thanks so much for your comments. This has been a fun hunt seeing what everyone comes up with for skinny.

Theresa said...

Well to someone 5'2'', I have always dreamed of those long skinny legs, however I was born with my dad's family genes of thunder thighs, oh well.

I am in Arizona this weekend, so I will be missing this photo hunt, although I would of had to post pictures of dear hubby instead of myself.
