What is a Bad Girl?

Some of us were born bad. Others learned the art. A Bad Girl is always happy to help a good friend go bad.

A Bad Girl is never a good girl at heart, although she probably has a heart of gold.

A bad girl says what she thinks, but she thinks about what she says. Being a Bad Girl doesn't mean being hateful.

Bad Girls don't make excuses. We apologize instead, but only if we are sincere.

Bad girls are funny . We can laugh at ourselves but we wont laugh at you. Even if you deserve it.

Bad girls are kind without being sugar-coated. We are sweet but not sappy. Bad Girls believe in being feminine without the fluff.

Bad girls are a tolerant bunch, as long as you don't expect them to tolerate anything that insults their intelligence or goes against their moral code.

Bad Girls have very high standards, but they love you even if you sometimes fall short.

Bad Girls tell the truth and expect you to do the same.

A Bad Girl stands up for what she knows in her heart to be right, whether or not her opinion is popular.

Bad Girls are independent. We are wise. We are loving. We forgive. We are strong. We speak our minds. We think. We grow. We feel. And we're not afraid to be strong.

Most of all bad girls are smart. Very smart.

Ciao Liesbeth,
what great advertising for the bad girls... I absolutely want to become a bad girl...
I don't usually love the portraits, but this is really excellent with these rebel expression and laying of the girl that are suitable for the note.

Hello Liesbeth!

Another fine auto-portrait you are proposing us today. Quite a good description of my lovely Martine. I did not realized she was that bad (^_^). Real cool note!

Dare to be different ans as Bad as you can ! ( to comply with these statements everyday !)

Grreat job with the self P
i like the black and whit very much
well done bad girl.

Sweet! Excellent portrait, nicely composed and showing quite an attitude. Very good, Liesbeth the bad girl!

From my POV she is beautiful...:)

very cool self portrait here liesbeth :)
i like the mood
excellent choice of b/w

Hello Liesbeth,
I somehow lost contact to your posts but remebered very soon that they are still unique. Good combination of visual and text message again.
TFS Take care. Thomas

Bad girls can also be good subjects and photographers both at the same time . I just love that defiant look and the slightly above face pov. B&W is perfect for this presentation.


The coolest... Bad girls ride motorcycles!
Bad girls don't get messed with!
Bad girls have more fun!
Bad girls aren't afraid to get dirty!
Bad girls take great pics!
Great pic!

Hello Liebeth

Lovely work,this reminds me of the American film actress Ally Sheedy from the movie The Breakfast club.You have captured the attitude.TFS


This is a good protrait and the note, too, is really good.
In my opinion the off-centre frame and the writing detract from rather than add to the shot, making it more of an excellent poster or bumper-sticker rather than the fine art photography it deserves to be. This is only a minor point as the photo is so striking that I didn't notice the other elements on first glance.
Well done.

  • Great

Heheh, sorry, but you are way too cute to be a bad girl. And I know that comments like this make you bounce off the wall.

"And we're not afraid to be strong."

Think of that sentence. Reading between words, it tells how vulnerable you are.

Good b/w, using hair and black shirt to frame the face.


Excellent portrait!!!... i love the mood here and the facial expression... congratulations by this so great image... i love this!!!... TFS...

bad but beautiful!
nice composed shot and the black and white is very good


How wonderful and true words in your note ! YES ! I agree !!!!
Love this portrait, love the glance, love the mood, great tribute for bad girls.
b&w is a good choice and the rendering of light is very nice.
