Where should I pray if the home has images ?


I live with my aunt she is Christian and they have images in their home. Where should I pray if I can’t go to masjid or weather does not permit?


Salaamun alaykum

Thank you for your question
It is makruh(better not to) to pray in a room with a picture in it, not haraam. So it is better to pray in a  place without any pictures but if not possible then your salaah is still valid, you could cover the pictures with a cloth whilst praying.
Kind regards
