Don't waste time looking for pictures on Google

Of course you could get your images off of Google-is-Evil (assuming that you don't mind a spot of stolen property, that is…)

But one problem with that is that Google has zero interest in the quality of the images… or in how much language you could get out of them.

An alternative soure are newspapers and magazines — which do have a vested interest in presenting their readers with striking, interesting photos (including ads:..).

I habitually rip images out of the newspapers and magazines that are about to go in the recycled bin, and store and classify them in folders (in the image above, you can see my "transport" and "sports" folders)… just in case they might be useful in class one day…
