Ok fashion world…here is a quick lesson for you ONCE AGAIN. A white painted bicycle is for this…

Not for this…

Just think about it, when you go out of your way to paint an entire bicycle to use as some prop for a fashion photo shoot because the hard work of cycling activists had made bicycles cool.
Someone out there has lost a loved one who was bravely cycling and being a conscious human being. Why don’t your emaciated models hold up a white painted tombstone over their heads? Equally as fashionable.
I’d just like to strive for making a few images off limits due to their sensitive nature. Just like you wouldn’t use images of a starving child or a woman in a burka. I know your desperate to steal trends to sell over-pirced clothing made in sweatshops. Just be a bit more sensitive to those who have lost their lives for bike riding. Why not just use a bicycle that is actually white or has nice white parts…You know they are doing amazing things with color coordinating bicycle parts.
Ok, thats my PSA for the day.
