If you ever had to teach this part of the exam you may have spent endless hours trying to find a picture with good enough content related to the topics so it can be described by the students. Furthermore, at some point, you might have even felt so frustrated that you even considered becoming a photographer and staging the whole thing but it can be way more simple than that.
