In this photo there are two different symbols, which both mean the same thing. The first symbol are the stones and the second symbol is the black box. The stones are used to kill the people that are chosen "...eventually made a great pile of stones...". The black box was how the found out who died "... Mr. Summers, holding his slip of paper in the air and, said, 'All right, fellows.'". Both of these symbols represent death.
The photo is showing the image of the box growing shabbier. In the story they said overtime it began to grow shabbier. This is imagery because you're able to see the box growing old and shabby. The picture is when Mr.Summers is pulling the paper out of the old box.
The figurative languages I chose to show were irony and metaphor. The metaphor is that the lottery is being compared to a tradition. They do it every year to control population. The irony is that people normally want to win the lottery, but in this case people would rather not.
The theme of the story is you follow tradition, no matter how harsh, and the tone is tense. Tense is shown by them waiting to see what their paper says. The theme is tradition because they do this every year and they never not do it.
