To continue the discussion of The Right to Ugliness...
Look past the stereotypes in your mind.
Look past the wall that distracts you.
|Note to readers: this photo is my example of |
a broken wall, not ugliness.
I personally like graffiti art.
If you think something is ugly,
look at it for a long time.
You may change your idea of it.
Ugliness is a judgment, an opinion,
which comes from a stereotype you have in your mind,
some idea of things you acquired as you went through life.
try this experiment:
keep the above blog post open on your desktop for a whole day,
with the "ugly" photos showing,
so that you will see them, even walk by them,
several times during the day.
I did this, and my perceptions changed.
Now, these people are no longer ugly to me,
as I began to "know" them as human beings rather than stereotypes.
