I sort of borrowed this little Renault car off one of my daughters. I've run it for several years and it's been an absolute blessing. I've had to put petrol in it regularly enough, but I've never needed to put a drop of oil in it, or any fluid, or repair anything. Neither have I ever washed it, cleaned out the overflowing ashtray, or emptied the boot, which is full of junk. Maybe I had to buy a couple of tyres once for the annual MOT test. Anyway, all good things come to an end, and I'm having to fix a little issue with the engine. Meanwhile I borrowed another car off a daughter. She doesn't know yet because she's abroad somewhere. I'm hoping I can put all the bits back in a working order before she returns.

Do you see what I'm doing by adding this little narrative? I'm giving the reader all sorts of information that isn't remotely evident in the image. But this information then becomes invested in the picture. It creates a meaning for the image.
