23 Awesome Pictures of Drinking Straws

Sometimes, the simplest objects make the best photography subjects. Drinking straws, for example, are great subjects for abstract photography and still life pictures. You can fill the tubes with light or leave them dark; make the colors uniform or brightly varied; pile them together or single one out for a whimsical touch to food photos. Best of all, you get a respectable excuse to play around with them again, just like a kid, because you’re a photographer.
