How do you store the facts? As plaintext sentences, "the car is blue", associative, "car->blue", or something else? For me (now I'm doubting that it's a common experience), I'm trying to recall seeing the picture. I re-see the picture and tell you things about it.

This is why a lot of people close their eyes when they try to remember. It's also why suggestion is such a powerful tool to alter memory, I'm not seeing the original picture. I'm recreating it from scratch and if someone asks me to "remember the red car" that might just seep in.
