|Susan Walkley Topper talks about her inspiration for letter "F".|
"I immediately knew the Abecedarian collaborative was for me. Being assigned the letter F was perfect...I already had many photographs of flowers! As a photographer, I have always been drawn to the beauty and complexity of flowers. I am fascinated to be able to watch them come into being when they are growing in or around my home. The big challenge was...how to do what I envisioned? I know very little about Photoshop, so I had to enlist the help of a close friend to teach me to do what I had in mind. So many choices...so many different decisions. Fortunately, I had left myself enough time. I am very pleased to have been a part of this collaborative."
