In the second photo, there was a banana and a smiley face on a lemon, both of which weren't in the first photo. The majority of people don't notice subtle changes such as the smiley face on the lemon because we rely on old maps in the brain to save time and energy. This reliance let's the brain run in autopilot so we don't have to fully pay attention to the world around us. 

Try to remember more by relying less on gadgets like your GPS and focusing more on the environment around you.
