14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The stories behind the straws

On a recent trip to Colombia, I walked by a food street vendor and spotted this soda case with empty bottles and straws. What captured my attention was the appearance and subtle differences between each straw. By taking a closer look, I realized that behind each of these, there's probably a cool story of a person who drank it. Is he a morning person? What was the last concert she went to?
