So, Adrian Erickson recently did an interview in the Maple Ridge News (which sounds so Norman Rockwellian). It is fairly interesting and contained some information in it that I was not aware of. Here’s a link to Part One of the article: Sasquatch:Is it out there? It came out in the online version and print version of the Maple Ridge News. That’s significant, because the print version had an added element to the story. They included a picture of a frame from the Erickson documentary that supposedly has clear HD footage of a number of Sasquatches or Sasquatchi or Sasquai or Sassy’s or whatever the hell the plural is for Sasquatch. Anyway, the frame grab is of a female Sasquatch sleeping under a tree. It appears (appears meaning I’m speculating) that Erickson did not want a clean digital version of the frame grab online, so they were only allowed to put it in the print version.
The problem is an industrious member of the Bigfoot Forums snapped a picture of the newspaper and posted the twice removed image in the forums. I believe Mr. Erickson would have been better off letting the paper post the original image on their website because a picture of a picture is fuzzy and unclear, and it’s also not protected by copyright.
I’m posting the picture here for no other reason than it exists. I don’t endorse it. I don’t decry it. I don’t weep over it and thank the god’s above or curse the demons below. It’s a picture of picture that’s not a photograph, but a frame grab. BTW – I tweaked the “creature” to bring out details. You can’t see her face. She is lying in the fetal position with her head ducked down under her arm to shade herself from the sun. That’s their description. Not mine. I will punch you if you accuse me of saying this image is legitimate. I don’t know if it is. I don’t know if it’s not. That’s the point.
One more thing, the original is not black and white. Remember this was a picture taken of a picture in newspaper.
Note: Someone’s already come up with a different interpretation of the image. They think the head is at the other end. That’s the problem with blobsquatches.
Note 2: The Bigfoot Forums member just sent me a note and let me know he got the picture from a Facebook group.
Note 3: The Oregon Bigfoot Blog has a interpretation of the photo that makes me doubt mine. Instead of the hand grasping its shoulder, they’ve made a pretty good case that hand is actually by the head. Same fetal position, but arm is different than my outline. Erickson Project Photo Release
