An ugly challenge


Perhaps terribly ugly or dazzlingly beautiful.

A woman who can’t be ugly, isn’t beautiful
(Karl Kraus – austrian writer)


Perhaps terribly ugly or dazzlingly beautiful.


In fact so really ugliness comes from the “inside”
mascara, deodorant, tie, hat makeup and mustaches doesn’t help
sometimes from inside the observer and sometimes from inside the observed
beauty it is what each of us sees as beauty – ugliness too.
The inspiration comes from the worth visiting blog “Ese’s Voice

  1. Hi Drake!
    “beauty it is what each of us sees as beauty – ugliness too.”, yes yes yes, I totally agree. And there is no beauty in a person if this person isn’t beautiful inside…
    Nice photos indeed. 🙂

      An old saying – “requests never a woman about her own imperfections,
      she will never be finished listing them up”… 🙂 🙂

      Women they know very often more than us men
      – but they rarely know how lovely they are… 🙂 🙂

  2. The legs are beautiful. I think the muscles are too, big and ugly. That is just personal opinion.
    As for your lovely post, semantically, I agree with you! _Resa xo

  3. mon canard danois, tu m’as fait peur(LOL!) avec la photo sous les belles jambes… est-ce le bras d’Arnold aka terminator-Schwartzie?… 😉 merci pour tes haltes à mes posts, amitiés toulousaines et poutous mouillés, ‘cause it’s raining for the 1st time this month… à+! 🙂 Mélanie

  4. Your interpretation of the theme really made me smile, Drake 🙂 And brought me back to how much the perception of beauty/ugliness really depends on one’s own likes/dislikes and the personal prism we always have when looking at the world around.

      Thanks a lot, glad you like it – really appreciate your words… 🙂

      Agree with you about beauty/ugliness – often we have make our choice before we even see “it” – or some and too many have… 🙂

  5. Excellent post. I have not heard that quote from the Austrian author, but I do think it’s so true.

    I was amazed when Scarlett Johanssen looked like she did in the lead role of that serial killer Aileen. AMAZED how she looked like her – basic, not attractive. I realised Scarlett is beautiful in her natural self, but moreso in that she is no way shy to take on a meaty role even if it renders her “ugly”.
