One thing, is all it takes for people to change their ways and do things out of greed and want, one thing, is all it takes for people to do whatever they can to get the pot at the end of the rainbow.

The Scarlet Pimpernel, Ozymandias, and Viva La Vida share the common idea that, people can change because of their selfishness and need of power, by using descriptive words to create imagery in their text.
With war photography a photo isn’t just a image it is a trace of reality, an experience that was captured ,or even a moment. War photography is like an art that gives importance to real life events and also makes them worth remembering after you take them. When you take a photo it 's about telling the reality of that photo, about showing what others may not see, to make them aware of it though the images come from the media. However, when the photo serves as informing the world we find ourselves facing the world to see if it 's true or if it 's not true. If people could be there to see it for themselves, the fear and grief for just one time in their life, they would understand that nothing is worth letting things get to the point to where people get hurt but everyone can’t be there, so that 's why photographers go there to show them, to reach out, or to grab them and make them realize what 's happening to the world or to even pay attention to what is going on, to create a powerful picture to overcome the effects of the mass media and to shake people out of their indifferences that they have against each other. Therefore the role of photography plays an essential part of the world in order to spot the war situation in

However, in the case of Ozymandias (Ramses II) his statue, as a representation of him, is left in the dust of the sands, decrepit in the place that was once his kingdom of Thebes (GCSE). In Percy Shelley’s poem, “Ozymandias,” a Petrarchan sonnet, Shelley thoroughly disvalues Ramses within the realms of three speakers: The narrator, the traveler, and Ozymandias himself. Percy uses mostly both visual imagery and irony to narrate the lost accomplishments of a King, therefore conveying the mortality of personal glory.
