Photos for IB Language B

Now that the International Baccalaureate has changed the test for 2013 for Language B, teachers are responsible for finding photographs to use in class for practice as well as photos to use in the indvidual oral internal assessment.  I’ve been collecting websites that have photos in hopes of finding some good photos to use for Spanish.  I can’t guarantee you’d find the perfect photos, but here is what I have so far:
