I'm going to stick my neck out and say "no", because there are just too many 
ways of achieving the same result (ie: people performing image searches).

You can start from a specific image search URL such as above

You can start from a standard Google search and then click on the "images" 

Even with a standard search, you get images in the results, and you can then 
follow those directly

Of course it's also compounded by the number of different languages Google can 
be accessed in, and the different URLs that provides.

Finally, why pick on Google?  There are plenty of other search engines which 
will give people images in the results.

Just out of interest, why do you want to block an image search if you're happy 
with a text search?  What are you trying to stop people getting at?


I conclude that there are two ways of constructing a software design: One way 
is to make it so simple that there are _obviously_ no deficiencies, and the 
other way is to make it so complicated that there are no _obvious_
