Ever wished that there was a way to easily browse through Flickr to find photographs which are catered to your taste? Well, there is now. Phototree is a search engine which allows you to browse through hundreds of photographs from Flickr. It works very similarly to Stumbleupon, only without the toolbar.
It has a rating system, and as you rate each photograph it presents to you, it will “learn” what kinds of image you like and dislike and adjust the images that it presents to you accordingly. It will also save any of the images that you have rated positively in a favourites folder which gives you the option of going back and browsing through the photographer's photostreams at your leisure.
I have been using this for a while now and it is easy to use, giving you the opportunity to see images that you normally may miss. It's a great online resource and it's absolutely free.
Lensbaby lenses are perhaps the simplest way to add a completely new dimension to your photography. Try a Lensbaby when you need a creative edge or just want to have fun with your camera.
Examples of photographs taken with Lensbabies:

Colorful laundry dries on lines in a Berber village in Morocco's High Atlas Mountains. Many Berbers, or Amazigh, fled to the highlands following the Arab conquest of North Africa in the seventh century A.D. Unlike the Berbers who remained with their conquerors, those who went to the High Atlas have until today managed to preserve their identity, their language, and their independence.
