Here's a link to some images following a search for "family holiday photographs". Print one or two of the photographs and then play the role of examiner and student. The person playing the examiner should say:

You should talk about the photograph for 1 minute, describing what you can see. Here is your photograph. I'd like you to tell me what you can see.
When your partner has finished change roles.
