I see this every time I drive up the I-5. I caught some of the details and lost others. The rudiments of coming up with something from memory allows for this sort of ambiguity. I sometimes wonder what is the best way to approach memory work. Is it better to make it all up in order to work with visual knowledge you already know without hamstringing yourself with attempts at capturing actual reality? Or should you only record the reality you know and forget all the details you can’t recall? Or is better to have a completely different approach, like making it up as you go along?
