Some of your pictures are worth ten-thousand words...at the very least. Show them to your students; they'll start bringing in their own.
As a writing teacher, I always ask my students to bring in funny or favorite family photographs, and we use these to inspire memoir or snapshot writing. Sometimes my writers write their best descriptions based on their own photographs, but just as often, my young authors write brilliantly based on the photographs of other students.
For whatever reason, intriguing pictures inspire great writing, be they your pictures or someone else's. On this page, I share some favorite family pictures in hopes they might inspire writing from you. I challenge you to post some of your pictures somewhere so that others might discover what stories they could tell.
