Ever find yourself needing to go to the bathroom, but can't get the word across to the locals although trying hard to pronounce and speak their language? Next time, before going on your trip, take a picture of your toilet so when you ever do find yourself stuck in this predicament, you can show them the picture of the toilet from your camera and they will immediately understand.
Better yet, you can do this for any simple basic necessities when traveling abroad. Take a picture of a bus, to have someone show you to the closest bus station. Even your hotel business card so your taxi driver will know exactly where to drop you off. Say you're in Paris, and you want to visit the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and Arc de Triomphe, but you don't know how to get this information across to your taxi driver. Get some pictures of these attractions on your camera and show the taxi driver, and he'll know exactly where to take you.
The ideas are endless and anyone can "understand" a picture. Just take a few minutes at home and load some pictures up of things that may help you get your point across easier when traveling to another country.
