Hamish had just left the front passenger seat to get some groceries, whilst Kaye and I were sat in the back. The lighting and the curves of the interior with the ripped up door panelling, looked quite striking from where I was sitting. How to fill the window space? Back home in front of the computer, I saw a photo I had taken of a shopfront with a sort of small ‘front garden’. It is the fenced enclosure of an estate agent’s called ‘Minors & Brady’ on Unthank Rd, so I incorporated that image to expand the narrative. I filled the side view mirror with a photo of a kerb with double yellow lines, to be synonymous with the interior curves. I liked the contrast between the fluid shapes in the car, and the straight lines outside. Simon won’t mind me saying his car is rubbish,… because it is.. will he?
