President Joe Biden is tall, but is he so tall? President and first lady Jill Biden recently visited former President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in Plains, Georgia, and the couple posed for a photo. But once The Carter Center shared the image, the audience began to feel somewhat awkward.
The Bidens look heavy, while the Carters look younger, leading some to joke that it looks like the First Couple is coming to a dollhouse.
“Very awkwardly shot photo,” wrote actress Meredith Salenger, even while hanging pictures of the Carter family on the wall. “Plus it looks like a dollhouse. Or the Bidians are from Gulliver Travels. It’s the art behind it that does it for me.”
Jimmy Carter biographer Jonathan Alter pointed out that The Washington Post is not much smaller than The Carters’ Bidens, although there are height differences. Jimmy Carter is reportedly 5-foot-10, Rosaline 5-foot-5, and at the age of 96 and 93, respectively, he has likely lost some height in a few years. Joe Biden is just under 6 feet, and Jill Biden is reportedly 5 foot-6.
Freelance photographer Marlena Sloss has described the post as a strong flash prospect, making it appear that Joe Biden and Rosaline Carter are side-by-side, while he is actually kneeling in front of her, and a wide-angle camera lens has Has helped to increase confusion, wildly different heights.
The reason behind the strange image of a Twitter user was the idea, writing, “It seems that the photographer can’t use the right lens because they didn’t have the distance to go back, so they pulled out the wide angle. That’s all. Exposed two sweet moments and stitched them together so that the perspective was not awe-inspiring. “
Still, this was the perfect picture to get to Bulbul.
One Twitter user wrote, “At least one of the following is true: 1) Beadens are 9 feet tall 2) Carters are 3 feet tall or 3) I’m losing my mind.”
Another said, “It looks like that scene in The Fellowship of the Ring where Gandalf is going to Frodo’s house.”
Photo editors also enjoyed playing with the image, shrinking or enlarging the joints.
Biddens’ trip to the Carters was part of his trip to Georgia last week and marked Joe Biden’s 100th day in office.
