Suggestions for next photo series?Dave Hickey

Scot Gore water series had a great response. What should the next series be? How about a ride shot of you on your bike. It's going to require someone to take the picture but we see so few pic's of people riding their bikes.

Any other ideas?

Was a series documenting a varied week of Chicago area riding. It would be nice to see what kind of spice people have in their local scene, you know - group rides, race scene, rail trails, mtb stuff.

I meant to do this all summer, but never got around to hauling the camera with me all week long. It would have gone something like this:

Sunday group ride
Monday on the Des Plaines River Trail on the cross bike
Tuesday night velodrome training
Wednesday relaxed ride along the North Shore
Thursday night track racing
Friday at the YMCA (non-cycling content)
Saturday different group ride

I would love to see this from folks around the country. I'm taking a riding sabatical right now, but I promise to get around to something like this before fall.

What about a series on the hills / mountains we ride, showing scenery and the road? Nothing like the mountains right?

I have not been able to figure out how to photogragh steep sections in such a way as to show the reality of climbing. Perhaps this would be a chance to learn something.

It's tough to show the steepness in a 2D environment (i.e. the camera), without some perspective. You need a fellow rider or an object to show or give the correct "feeling". This picture from L-B-L gives you the feeling it's steep by using the buildings.

You need a riding buddy or object(s) like trees/rocks/whatever to give the "feeling" of steepness.

Sorry, no ideas for the next photo series, though I definitely want to participate this time.

Happy riding.

How about a photo series showing "movement". I really like shots taken showing action. Could be still or the type where the backround is blurred a bit? This would also get to show some of us doing this past time we love.
