Reader: Don't compare your Anthony Weiner to a television remote or a beer can

Caution. Objects may appear smaller in rear-view mirror.

Anthony Weiner has left the building, resigning after the mounting pressure built up to the point that it exploded out of containment. But that doesn't mean that American men can't take away some lessons from this saga of a congressional member.

And by lessons, we mean photography lessons. In a post earlier this week, Jenn Wohletz offered five ideas to help camera-happy fellows make their Weiner look bigger in photos.

Reader Gaele Hi offered one more:

Oh goodness...I would suggest that you also avoid the "television remote" or "beer can" comparison shots .. there is nothing that is more trite.

Thank you Gaele Hi. Duly noted.
