Group Description

Beautiful pictures of ugly things.

Lovely, means anything you want it to.

Eyesore, is more specific. I’m looking for public ugly things that were built or designed in bad taste or with a general disregard for aesthetics. Billboards, strip malls, transformer stations, that kinda thing.

There are an awful lot of eyesores around my city, probably all cities, and I find it irresistible to point my camera at them. Maybe it’s some idea about documenting the horribleness of it all. But then I get home, do a little cropping, a little color adjustment. The next thing I know, I've got a really nice image. Am I glorifying bad taste and ugliness? Am I making lemonade from lemons? I don't know, but if you do the same thing, your pics are welcome in this group.

This is the stuff often shows up in this group, but doesn't belong.
