There are a lot of really nice lenses out there, but there also are a lot of things that aren't "normal" camera lenses in any sense of the word. They may be special-purpose lenses (fisheye, soft-focus, telescope, microscope, etc.), door peepholes, pinholes and zone plates, mirrored stuff, various plastic or glass objects, water, etc. Use one. Digital imaging makes it easy to see and creatively manipulate the somewhat unpredictable effects of such optics.

This photo was taken just before sunset - on Christmas eve - from Land's End point in Sf, looking northwestern towards the Marin Headlands. The main subject is a famous landmark Labyrinth that a close friend of mine (Eduardo Aguilera) built the year before. It is a very sacred and spiritual place that has been destroyed and rebuilt many times since. I wanted to get the Labyrinth in scale - while bending the horizon to reflect the roundness and perpetual motion of mother earth.
