Photogrammetry 101: Distance From The Camera

The toes are poorly defined so why would the heel be well defined? And why is it the only "anomalous" cast? Maybe it is a boot heel print, but what's the point in speculating on 1 print that is unconvincing. This is a case of pareidolia. Let's move on.

Sorry but people speculate on singularities all the time in bigfootism.  Pareidolia is something an individual sees for themselves.  Now Drew mentioned a possible boot mark.  I remembered thinking this years ago from that shot.  If Drew weighs in and confirms we saw the same possibility independently then there's more to it.  

 

While we're on the subject of singularities why does the mid tarsal break not show up in all of Patty's prints?  That question begs an answer as much as the possible boot mark.

^Speculate away, but pareidolia is not decided by consensus. DesertYeti was the first to see the heel print in that cast and speculated it was made by the actor wearing boots inside costume bigfeet. Boots in hairy hipwaders with bigfoot slippers attached to the feet. Why don't you draw the outline of a 12" pointy toed boot in the 14.5" cast to show how the boot fit inside the bigfeet? Keep in mind you only have a couple inches of clearance. If the toes were longer than 2 inches then you must place the heel to the very back of the cast. You need plenty of "toe" room so they can flop around, contract and push off.

The sole must have been soft enough for the boot heel to show through, but the toes were rigid enough to leave impressions yet flexible enough to bend as seen in the film. How do boots in bigfeet accomplish that? As far as the mid-tarsal break is concerned, that has everything to do with the compliancy of the substrate Patty walked on. The less compliant, the less MT break in the tracks. Judging from the casts the compliancy of the creek bed was highly variable. Also, fake bigfeet can simulate an MT break in a print, which makes me wonder how much of this is a feature of the compliancy of the substrate versus the MT break of the bigfoot.

Don't forget we must also assume that the other Titmus casts were created by the actor if you think one of them shows the actor's boot print. So you must also explain how costume bigfeet made them as well. Good luck with that.

Are. You. Serious!!????????????????????????????????

 

You truly think somebody was actually wearing cowboy boots inside fake feet?? Considering it was you who referenced the tinfoil hat brigade in mock at the bigfoot world yesterday I think the irony is fantastic. I'm really enjoying this.

Why not can you furnish a reason why that wouldn't work?  Do you think Bob H was naked under the suit he says he wore.  Why not concentrate on the odd shape of the heel in the photo.

Hey there is an odd artificial look to the heel of that print.  Have you an organic explanation?

^^

Two things: If a boot-print had shown up in one track, then it would have in others. Since Roger took the film prior to Titmus's arriving - nine days had elapsed. Laverty and his crew had walked the sandbar and examined the site - not to mention Henry and McClarin (maybe others too). If an anomaly was an actual boot print and limited to one track, then I would be more inclined to think someone placed their foot inside a track to show how their foot size compared to the track maker's.

Another point worth mentioning to anyone who thinks someone wearing a fake foot made the track and their boot outline came through, then they should be prepared to state with some resemblance of sound reasoning how the stride was achieved by mere walking in a costume - how the track depth was achieved - and how a cowboy boot allowed a foot to bend 90 degrees at its hinge point?

To even introduce the possibility - one must be able to explain away the impossible.

This is about an artificial looking heel print not about strides.  BTW there's a thread to argue the point.

So you are arguing somebody wearing cowboy boots inside a costume and inside big fake feet can smoothly and fluidly without slipping or stumbling across an uneven sandbar? Is that what you are arguing? How thick exactly do you think these fake feet with their cowboy boots inside said feet would be?
