In this short review, we visualize the fluid velocity generated by a point force close to a plane free surface or a plane rigid wall. We present separately contributions from all the multipoles which form the corresponding classical systems of images. Such graphical images might be useful in the theoretical and numerical modeling of the dynamics of micro-objects moving close to an interface.
