They are not "about" anything, they are stock images that a journalist might use on an article about anyhting internet or tech related for which there is no relevant subject for a real photograph. If the journalist is writing about cryptography, a new virus, an online scam, a new algorithm, or a new users guide to the world wide web, then they would get an image like one of those and use it as a fancy looking title. there is no image that really suits a concept like cryptography, it is all mathematics, so other than a picture of the researcher involved, tucked low down on the page, that is the only thing a journalist can really use. For viruses,scams and algorithms there is also not much in the way of pictures to provide, a screenshot would be a good thing to show in the article but putting one as the main image looks a bit half-hearted so they tuck it down in a smaller picture on the page and use this generic but meaningless pic for the title image. A second purpose of such generic pictures is to cover for the fact that the journalist has been lazy and not written much by distracting the reader from how little text there really is in the article (be it in a web article or one in a newspaper/magazine). It tells the reader nothing but it is considered more pleasing to the eye than a pure wall of text with no pictures to break it up.This site   http://www.howtogeek.com/     which often provides some pretty good computing articles, shows how pics like these are used, as title images and on links to articles from other sites, useful pics like faces of researchers,screenshots,internal hardware diagrams are tucked further down the page. "google news" also has loads of these type of pics next to articles in it's "technology" section, they are there because there is no relevant pic to show in the link to the various articles. This type of image is used in the same way as "super close ups of the pixels on a screen displaying one character of text" might be, to say the article is about tech and the internet but give no useful info in the process.

If you want to produce images like that, or better, for yourself learn to use "blender" and "GIMP".

Since this is about a school project I suggest that you do your own thinking about the 2 pictures. Develop your own ideas and theories. This way you learn as you do it yourself and find the answers to the questions before you.

In REAL LIFE, you will have to do your own thinking. Now is a good time to start honing your thinking skills.

Ooo, those pictures provide an excellent opportunity for a good critical thinking paper.  I've got some ideas along those lines.  In such a project, there are no right or wrong answers.  What teachers/professors look for is whether you back up your opinions or ideas with evidence from the images and good sound interpretation.

Top image evokes the image of world wide computing. Bottom image does the same with the addition of mobile. Thats what I get. Let me know how I did and if I get a gold star..... :)

For me the top image symbolizes unison using the internet. Allowing countries to be interconnected and united as one. I picture the second image as portability among people being connected across the globe, sharing information throughout the web.
