“Lensbaby” is a special lens that distorts parts of the image and can create some really nice and interesting effects in your picture. Take a look at their website at http://lensbaby.com/ to get familiar with their product. I am sure you can create some similar effects in Photoshop or other post production photo editors. I challenge you to create some awsome images either with a lensbaby lens or in post production. There is a nice tutorial on how to do that at the following link: http://photo.net/learn/digital-photography-workflow/techniques-tips/creating-the-lensbaby-effect.
I decided to do this exercise at a familiar place. I photographed at Columbia State Park many times during the last years and I thought just using a lensbaby could open my eyes to a new perspective.
