Pick a straw. Any straw.
OK, that one!
Take a closer look.
It might look better in the light.
Oops. Don’t cut the top off! Try again.
That’s better! Look at it from a slightly different angle.
Now bring in a prop.
Try to take the photo as though it’s a fine portrait.
Or from a jaunty angle.
And then fade away into the ether.
Or by the magic of adding a little more light, if said ether isn’t available!
Obviously, there are more tops than turves in this tale of a single straw wanting to break away from the rest, become a star, and rise to the top.
This is another post for Becky’s Square Top challenge, but this time it is in response to an additional challenge Becky set me to make a single straw become a great square. I don’t know whether I succeeded in that, but I had fun creating the photos for this post.
