This may belong in the "Advocacy" section, but I'm looking for ideas here. One of my bigger hobbies (obsessions?) is photography, and as I haven't managed to get out and shoot for awhile, I'd like to do a project. Since I really like cycling, what better for a project than cycling advocacy (and just a bunch of cycling-related photographic work in general)?
I'm looking for slogans and/or photo ideas; basically, things to do over the next six months or so. Equipment-wise, I can handle just about anything except free-aerial shots (sorry, no helicopter just yet), and I've got a few ideas for things I'll run by you:
1. There are a few "big" cycle rides, and a shot of the riders zooming along the bike trail next to the freeway with its stand-still traffic with the caption, "I don't cycle because it's too slow." (or something similar).
2. Parody of a Calvin Klein ad, with a man and a woman dressed in Lycra standing next to a bike with the overlay: "Velo: For a man, or a woman." Maybe another shot with a baby sitting in front of the bike in diapers with the caption "Not For Newborns Just Yet, Though."
I think that most of the advocacy needs to be focused on people in my age range; people in the 18-25 demographic, who are in college and don't have piles of money. Why? Because they're already looking for ways to conserve costs, and because they're still forming their self-image.
