January Photo Challenge with Cozy Clicks : The UGLY Location Challenge!

*****This Challenge is now over. See the FEBRUARY CHALLENGE HERE****

The theme for the January photo challenge is: The Ugly Location Challenge!

Photographers are encouraged to find a location that is typically not thought of as being an ideal spot.  Doesn’t necessarily have to be “ugly” just not your first choice for a photo location.  This could be (but not limited to) a messy room in your home, your garage, and alley way, parking lot, YOU get creative! Think outside the box and shoot somewhere you typically might not.  Take a not so perfect location and work your magic!



⭐Create a blog post OR social media post (Facebook, Instagram) with your final image and your pullback shot of the “ugly” location.

⭐Make sure that somewhere in your post your include this :  this is my entry for the challenge at
