HI, Eric -  I like the anonymity of the big guy next to the tiny 
little girl.  That's why I took the photo.  As somebody else pointed 
out, his mouth matches hers.  Anything more would have been 
distracting and anything less wouldn't have made the point of the 
size different.

It is.  I should have done a measuring stick rotation but didn't 
notice the door lines.

Thanks for looking!
