Random images can kickstart a story

Sometimes when trying to figure out a new story idea I get really frustrated and then suddenly some random image lights up some synapses and a story idea is born. I am currently working on a couple of stories but I wonder if a random pic could give me another idea.

Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata took a picture of a green apple with a porthole behind it, so it looks like the apple is floating in space. You can see the Russian-built capsules docked to the ISS and the Earth behind that.

Even if I cannot come up with a story I will always now have the image in my head and Koichi Wakata will be the "Applenaut" to me forever.
