These pictures are abstract in the classic sense of being designs pulled from reality. They remain representational, while emphasizing delights of shape, line, and color. Such photos are usually the fruit of sustained quiet time with my subject. At times I tip my hat to abstract painters, including my mother Janet Vanderwalker Myers. Growing up with her fresh and evolving work, and with the exhibits she took me to, was inspiring.
