i remember having friends over

We have become acclimatised to seeing the world from unfamiliar angles. There are the ever more frequent video calls with our parents, our friends, or our children, when they prop up their phones on a window sill/in an empty glass/inside the jug of an electric blender. The careful, flattering angled, well lit, Zoom calls of springtime have given way to occasional glimpses of a cat’s arse, cobwebs under their kitchen shelves, dust-bunnies clinging to discarded socks. And now when Megan remembers the social days of face to face conversation her lens floats above the scene, with a noirish Hitchcockian high angle. Her picture captures the mood of our times, this is not a happy angle.
