Rule Number 1- Take your camera everywhere you go.
Rule Number 2 – Use it any time – day and night.
Rule Number 3 – Lomography is not an interference in your life, but part of it.
Rule Number 4 – Try the shot from the hip.
Rule Number 5 – Approach the objects of your Lomographic desire as close as possible.
Rule Number 6 – Don’t think. (William Firebrace)
Rule Number 7 - Be fast.
Rule Number 8 - You don’t have to know beforehand what you captured on film.
Rule Number 9 - Afterwards either.
Rule Number 10 – Don’t worry about any rules.

Rule number 11? Upload all your shots that represent either of the 10 Golden Rules to this rumble!

    I can't see all of my Lab images in the Submit options, so I can't select the one I wanted for Number 3. Weird. Also, I cant see all of the ones I've already uploaded, nor can I remember which ones I already have. Lomo website = infinite frustrations, always, I've noticed.

    Ok - another instance of Lomo site frustration. I spent two hours and made myself LATE to the family Easter brunch just so that I could make sure I got all of the tags added to my photos, but I just checked on them in the pool - NO tags appear!

    I added the tags in the lab. Was I supposed to do something differently? The camera info is there, but the tags seem to have poofed!
