Funny, I thought she'd be taller than that. And since when are bigfoots blonde?

You think that pitcher in the last pic is full of this?

Oh my God. I just wrote a jogging bigfoot story.

That's some of the nastiest Photoshop post-processing I've ever seen.

@unSane: agreed. I think it's ironic in intent though, right? Like, super-clear photos? Ultra-(un)-sharp(ed)?

Yes, we have come a long way from the original photo of Bigfoot, which would now be considered a "Blobsquatch".

The term "Blobsquatch" is used derisively within the subculture of Bigfootery, and in fact the etymology of the word itself was researched.

Close up and with high resolution photography, the Bigfoot in these photos is an obvious costume. But as Penn and Teller demonstrated, if such a costume is in motion and at a distance, even "reputable" Bigfoot research groups like the BFRO can be totally fooled.

Looks more like Abe Lincoln to me.

Wait, is it caps lock day again already?

Holy shit. Someone teach every other photography web page programmer ever how to do that instantaneous mouse hover auto-switch thing. That is so nice.

Woody: Hey Mr Bigfoot - Jack Frost nipping at your toes?

Bigfoot: Yeah, now let's get Joe Beer nipping at my liver.

I didn't know that Bigfoots were made from brownie mix.

They're just viral stills from a Harry and the Hendersons remake.

Fun/what/quirky portfolio and smooth interface. The siamese twins photo captured me for much longer than I would have liked.

But only good if the visitor has a high-speed connection, otherwise the images loading in the background, especially if they're large file sizes, prevent the interface from initiating until they're all loaded.

For my photography site, I opted for the mootools interface, javascript driven and non-flash. You've probably seen it in use at other sites as well.

On topic: I love the shot of the crushed alarm clock.

Oh, this is unspeakably horrible. No idea why.

Attention photographers, you think you're being clever, but you're not. The correct way to present an image is as follows:
<a href="image_big.jpg"><img src="image_small.jpg" /></a>

He really ought not to go so all out when he's playing badminton with children--it kind of betrays some sort of human envy inferiority complex.

On his other galleries with a double row of thumbnails, it doesn't work at all for the bottom row. Or I'm just dumb.

I hope he didn't pay much for that haircut.

Not to be an asshole, but I'd swear it's a guy in a suit.

They weren't fighting...they were conceiving a new breed of ultra-hairy hominids.
