It’s what they say, ignorance is bliss and there’s no point in getting caught up and anxious about something. So why not to let go and join our showdown now!
Golden Rule #8: You don’t have to know beforehand what you captured on film
For someone who’s from the outside looking in would find it quite hard to appreciate or even to understand what this Golden Rule #8 actually means and normally they would just shrug their shoulders and dismiss it as a wasted frame, a bad picture or worse – an amateur’s failed attempt at making a photograph. On contrary, it is one of the many expertise a Lomographer could do with much less of an effort!
From the time we aim our camera and until an exposure is made by pressing its shutter button, we always hope for something magical – randomness! And these kind of snaps are what we yearn for this time for our current showdown!

Basically there's not much more to say: you can now edit your avatar and description. Now the tough question remains: what to show as your avatar? Yourself? Your favorite photo? Your cat? And what about the description? First or third person? Maybe go for pluralis majestatis?

It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
