Avatars, Camera Bags & Crossing Paths

With almost 10,000 members we must, from time to time, pass each other as we walk through woods and landscapes, attend air shows etc. We take a sideways glance at the equipment a fellow photographer is carrying. Nod, smile and go on our way.
I have produced a copy of my Avatar, The Prancing Moose, 5x5cm, in bright yellow, encapsulated it and hung from my camera bag. Should you spot it, it would be great to meet you face to face.
Anybody else prepared to give it a try?

There's a shot of me on epz: http://www.ephotozine.com/u16488/about
Trouble is you'd probably not see my face if I'm on a photo shoot - it'll be behind the K20D+grip

Shame there aren't Pentax User badges as there are on epz...
(an embroidered one would be good to sew on the camera bag)

My Avatar represents my camera bag, full of cobwebs from lack of use

Just look for a big hat along with the Pentax. Perhaps the new badge on the hat if someone gets around to making one.
The older I get the faster I was.

Problem with Hats is the peak! I have to put mine on back to front to look in the viewfinder. Maybe a small PU badge on the back. or a hat with the peak at the back. Embroidered badge, small and tastfull sounds a good idea. Range of applications.

Why not just wear the camera strap as a headband ?

Those of you that have met me will agree there is a certain resemblance to my avatar.
