Two Things Challenge: Ugly/Pretty


This shot was taken in Lyon, France. I'll leave it up to you to decide which is ugly and which is pretty. I think it depends on your perspective. The shop on the left sells specialized men's shirts which are of an extremely high quality and price.

Very interesting....right next-door to the upscale shirt shop is a pretty door all uglied-up with graffiti. I like this photo.....perfect for the challenge....pretty and ugly side by side.
Although I am sure the person who did the graffiti thinks the door is pretty now for it. : )

Thanks Virginia!

Vivian: Thanks! I think it all depends on the person's perspective. The graffiti artist probably thinks the shirt shop is elitist and therefore "ugly." Later on, I will show a detail of the graffiti on the door which was kind of interesting. I'm still not advocating painting over a beautifully carved wooden door though!

The door is pretty, love the old ornate wooden doors. But the tagging is quite ugly.

Great post for the theme!
The door is so pretty, the shirts even prettier in color...the scribles are beyond ugly. Beatiful meets pathetic.

One thing for sure, the doors were very pretty. Now . . . not so much.
