Flower Iscan be regarded as "an eminently fitting apotheosis for stream-of-consciousness photography It is primarily a memorial volume to Franks daughter, who was killed in an airplane crash in 1974 The whole tenor of the book is forlorn, which may be the adjective that best describes Franks work as a whole It reveals an artist at the height of his powers but hardly at peace with the world or himself" (Parr & Badger).

Stoughton took multiple photos in front of the White House fountains on the South Lawn when developing the 1961 Christmas Print. The final Christmas print, which showed more ducks positioned closer to the photographer, is derived from a different photograph taken moments before or after this mock-up. Here, the ducks are positioned on the far side of the pool and the camera was positioned at a slightly different angle than that used for the final Christmas Print.
