vancouver island-based author and artist

underexposed

all my friends are photographers
at least the ones
I grew up with
who grew some measure of respect
for the arts
in our millennial
adulthood
they all seem to have a good eye
for the same
exact
things
I love them
my photographer friends
I just wish they could see things
from a wider perspective
shine a light
on repetition
less for the need to be exposed
and instead for the sake
of shooting more
than meets the eye
