#3 on page 135

In this picture the children are sitting on the stairs covering their ears while their parents are at the bottom of the stairs arguing. The children are too young to leave the house, the only thing they can do is go into another room and try to drown out the noise. This picture makes a very good visual argument without the use of words. You can clearly tell what is going on in the picture by the children's expressions, and the body language from the adults and the children.

I like your choice of photograph; it certainly presents an emotionally powerful tableau.

You may want to make it a bit bigger, though. Squinting diminishes the picture's impact.
