That's one heck of a "shooting position".

He's obviously taking a Myspace/Facebook/whatever vanity photo

I just checked out your Flickr set. Nice collection of old ads. I especially like the last two, Yashica Electro 35 followed by the Honeywell Spotmatic. That's exactly the progression I followed back in my high school days. I've been Pentax ever since.

I found the Adaptamatic Ad pretty interesting also since I have a couple of those! (21mm & 135mm)

What an awesome ad ... and to think nearly 40 years later I have the same sitting at home in "Like New" condition.

Erik ... that's a top call.

That is a great ad! If Pentax had any sense they would bring it back because that "feel" is exactly why I bought the K10D on the spot after I picked it up and used it in the store.

Mine is not in "like new" condition but still working.

Doesn't matter ... as long as it still works and takes excellent images ... who cares.

That's my first SLR!! Exactly!! Spotmatic w/ 50mm f1.4 - bought mine in early 1969 from the Navy Exchange in Rota Spain and I've not let go since.
