Thanks Oldboy - that's what I was intending.

We do tend to photograph things normally which are pleasing to the eye.
Even if something's not so pretty, it can still be interesting  :)

The lack of comments made me worry for a bit ...... I've not had much experience you know  ::)

Carol - I think it's a great topic and since you announced it, I have a card full of ugly pictures.  The trouble is they were all taken at a particular event and I don't want a law suit on my hands!  However, I am working on it and will submit a self-portrait (heavily uglicised of course) if I don't get anything else!

this was a trickey one carol! i decided to go with an alternate view of a plant portrait. we usually see the pretty flowers and leaves. not seed pods....



by way of explaining context: this is some of the tree - it's hanging down and reaches the ground. the background in the close up photo is the red/organge of the rocks in front of the tree.



and... because i'm feeling all clever due to my new ability to place flickr images in the messages  ::)

this is a close up of a leaf

Do you think i could find some Ugli fruit any where? Not a chance. It's almost like the UK has stopped stocking it!

Even the village of Ugly in Cambridgeshire is off limits due to the weather. It's actually a stunning chocolate box village in appearance - just called Ugly! You just need some blue skies to make the picture work!

Oh well, back to plan C - this god awful ugly weather that has again blighted my plans for the day...

Actually the weather could have been a bit darker for my entry this week. I suppose I could have changed the sky a bit in PS ....

I have no idea what this building is, but it's one of the many derelict buildings in the area. Like a lot of industry, the Offenbach docks are long past their heyday. The figure down by the river is either Neptune or Poseidon, I'm afraid I don't know which one, I suppose I should really ....
