If you want to call it that. Someone mentioned their Lomo camera on one of the communities I read, and it intrigued me, so I looked it up, and it led me here: The Lomographic Society International.

Apparently Lomos were these Soviet cameras, and some Viennese students got their hands on a few while on holiday in Prague. They just started shooting, without regard for composition, or even having the camera anywhere near their faces. When they got back to Vienna and had the film developed, they were amazed at the shots they got. And so "Lomography" was born. There are ten rules:
  1. take your camera everywhere you go -- got that locked; I try to pop it in my purse every time I go out
  2. use it any time -- day and night -- check!
  3. lomography is not an interference in your life, but part of it -- well, it's new, but I'm working on it
  4. try the shot from the hip -- this part is so much fun!
  5. approach the objects of your lomographic desire as close as possible -- that's going to be tough
  6. don't think -- some might say that'll be the easiest part for me...
  7. be fast -- well, it's hard with the digital sometimes, but I try
  8. you don't have to know beforehand what you captured on film -- well, if it comes out totally black, I reserve the right to delete it, but for the most part, I leave everything on the card
  9. afterwards either -- I haven't really taken anything unrecognizeable yet, but give me time...
  10. don't worry about any rules -- WELL. That'll be easy. :-D
So that's my new endeavor. I have some pics from WalMart that I need to post; they came out kind of neat. I'll have to go do that...
