Beauty in the ugly

Challenge #2 in the Know the rules to break them right series. Hosted by Manuaalitarkennus.
Challenge has finished
Enter something (usually considered) ”ugly” photographed in an interesting way, so that the result is beautiful. I am highly aware these terms have different meanings to different people – do your best and let the voters decide (and don’t take the votes too personally). Still, I’ll surely disqualify photos of pretty young ladies, blooming roses etc. Creativity encouraged - if you can surprise me and the voters with your interpretation, please do. Questions and conversations addressed to the Challenges and galleries -forum, please.
