Today was a day for a bucket list photo. I saw this shot on flickr a few weeks ago, and made a note to try it. So, I was packing my kitchen today for the move in six days, and I came across my straws. Lacking other inspiration, I decided to give it a go. My efforts to exactly replicate the photo didn't work out so well (I couldn't seem to get the camera in the right spot), so I tried a different angle. And the result made me smile. It's so bright and shiny! Which is good for a day that's not so bright or shiny.
