The Photograph Phrasal verbs with Bring

My cousin Charlie has taken up photography. He took some photos for a new local magazine which they are going to bring out next month. The editor arranged a meeting for May, but they suddenly brought it forward to last week. At the meeting the editor brought up the subject of the cover of the first issue. They needed a good photo, something striking. Charlie went off to his car and brought back a selection of photos of local people. There was one Headmistress of the local secondary school. Charlie thought this would be an excellent choice because it would bring back memories for the readers. The editor agreed that it would bring back memories, but not necessarily good ones. Then there was a portrait of the local bank manager. He had been brought in to solve some problems. The problems had been brought about by the last manager having an affair with the cashier. Finally there was a picture of a really beautiful woman. “This will be a great story” Charlie explained “She lives in this town, and has a respectable job, but I have discovered that in fact she isn’t a she but a he. She is a man! And he was born in Los Angeles and brought up by Pamela Anderson. At this point the editor fainted, it was a picture of his fiancée. Charlie finally brought him round with a glass of brandy.
