"And for one hour every afternoon, while the boys napped, Imogen focused on her flowers, including a common magnolia blossom she shot close up. . . .Then, under the soft glow of a red bulb, her five-year-old son beside her, Imogen watched as the images she'd captured--her boys, her blossoms--slowly emerged on paper. She knew she had something special.
Her magnolia, with its luminous petals and jeweled stamen, was magnificent."
