Sorry for the graininess, but this was too funny not to share.
When my best friends from college were in town for our 5 year reunion, we thought it would be fun to have me take a picture next to Lydia's husband, Nick, who is 6'6" (That's Lydia's shoulder on the right side of the pic - it is a good thing she is a lot taller than me!).
Sometimes I think that I look taller than I really am in my pictures (maybe even over 5'!), since I am pretty much always alone in them, with nothing for size perspective. But as you can see, yes, I am petite. Something like a hobbit.
