Close-up of a Bigfoot action figure, part of the classic line of Six Million Dollar Man toys from the 1970s.
Photo submitted to the Flickr group Macro Mondays for the "Hair" theme.
I was inspired to shoot this image both from the Macro Mondays Flickr group theme “hair” but also because of a rash of Bigfoot stories in the news lately. Also, I just love this action figure from the classic line of toys based on the TV series The Six Million Dollar Man.
Bigfoot has also been spotted here:
Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.
This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.

"Bigfoot" is a hairy, humanoid creature said to live in the forests of the Pacific Nortwest region of North America. The creature is also known as "sasquatch" and is sometimes associated with the Yeti of the Himalayas. Most of the scientific community questions the existence of Bigfoot due primarily to the lack of supporting physical evidence. Bigfoot was a recurring character on the 1970s television series The Six Million Dollar Man.
