Perhaps everyone would prefer the break from work/study, but I think this being a physics etc. forum, that there is better knowledge of such things here for interpretation, whether literally or metaphorically, on topics that someone other than me would be better at naming, but along the lines of -
light, gravity, entropy, energy, chemicals, atmosphere, numbers, equations... these sorts of things.

There is a wealth of good material in phrases from song titles, cliches, poems etc. Ex:

A stitch in time
Troubled waters
For want of a nail
Nevermore
I left my heart
Sour grapes

Children with siblings

children with their parents
children with trees in the background
children standing on stone walls

kids holding guinea pigs
kids grabbing the dog's tail
kids hiding in cardboard boxes

That's all I've got these days!

Seriously now:

Photos of photos
races (as in competitions)
juxtapositions
extreme close ups (I think that's been done?)
lightbulbs
ancient ruins
dilapidation (modern houses, buildings falling apart)
rust belt factories
stone walls
tree bark (I'm serious)
wicker (not serious)
old shoes (old boots, running shoes)
 
Things that begin with the letter X
