A cache of 15,000 photographic negatives that nearly got tossed into the trash is offering Cinnaminson and its police department fresh pictures of a largely forgotten past. Who knew that routine photos of fender-benders, burglaries, and men in blue on their beats during the late 1940s through the mid-1970s could illustrate the evolution of a once-rural South Jersey suburb? Paul M. Seymour, who saved the black-and-white negatives and is making images from them, knew. So did his fellow township police officer, Thomas Lillagore, 49. He utilized more than a dozen of the photos to finish a job his late father started.

LETTER-writer Mark Walker makes a snide comment regarding the lack of photos of Flight 77 crashing into the Pentagon on 9/11 by pointing out how clear the security-camera photos of a shoplifting incident at a local Sears are. Because the crashes in New York were well photographed, it seems odd to some that Flight 77's crash into the Pentagon was not equally well photographed. Consider that we have no photos of the Titanic actually hitting an iceberg, so why do we accept that as fact?

ITHINK THE Daily News crossed a line in printing photos of arrested "johns. " First, many of the johns in your paper had merely been arrested, not found guilty. Arrests in any sting are often problematic. Suppose some of these men are innocent? Where do they go to get their reputations back? Second, this is a summary offense, not a felony, so why the big deal? You often don't publish the photos of felons. Are you trying to raise circulation? Or to serve the paper's feminist leanings?

Conventional portrait photography is condescended to by the art world. So in the three-artist, portrait-photography exhibit at Abington Art Center, don't expect to see anything remotely conventional. The approach in this show, titled Mortal Terrain, is much more indirect and subtle. Only one of the artists, David Freese, shows work you might recognize as portraiture at all. And go figure how the large painted images by Tracey Howard ever could have started out as photographs. This is another example of a display format favored by neighborhood art centers with increasing regularity - several mini-solo exhibits held to spotlight promising and diverse regional talent.

The national, juried photography show that the Painted Bride Art Center has organized as part of the "Voices of Dissent" festival marking the 200th anniversary of the Constitution is a poignant reminder that artists throughout our nation's history have asserted their right to free speech by means of their art. Many such images have cried out against injustice. No matter how certain these photographers are that their pictures carry special meaning in the context of this show, what always matters most is the artistry itself.

Multimedia is all about sounds and pictures and movement and interaction. The following CD-ROMs have their share of those - but the emphasis this week clearly is on pictures.

"Wow!" you say. "I wish I could take a picture that nice!" Five seconds later you discover the photo you liked so much is the "before" of a "before-and-after" set. Yes, even Bryan Peterson's "bad" pictures are great.

For reasons still unknown, Patricia McDermott was targeted by her killer, who followed her off a bus in Center City before dawn Tuesday, shot her in the head, then ran off into the still-dark morning, Philadelphia police said yesterday. Investigators released grainy, blurred photos culled from surveillance tapes of the suspect and of McDermott's last moments. Police also released a composite sketch of a "person of interest" they are seeking in the killing. The man in the sketch - an African American or Latino with a light to medium complexion and wearing a baseball cap, a light-colored jacket, faded dungarees, and dark sneakers - fits the description of the killer as seen on camera.

WHY PAY six digits for pictures of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie frolicking in the Kenyan surf when . . . you can just pretend. Haven't you ever heard of Photoshop? The Star has, that's why the mag saved its money on the real photos and merely doctored two separate oceanside pictures of each actor. The issue proclaims, "Brad & Angelina: Caught Together! On Vacation. " But tucked away on page 8 is a disclaimer noting the image is a "composite of two photographs. " Us Weekly won the bidding war for the actual pics, purchasing them from London-based photo agency Big Pictures for a reported $500,000.

Mayor Kenney on Thursday condemned a photo of a Philadelphia police officer with an apparent Nazi-style tattoo on his arm, saying the tattoo was "incredibly offensive" and not the sort of message police should be giving the community. The Police Department also said its Internal Affairs unit would review the photo, which began circulating on social media Wednesday night. It showed a bike-patrol officer with a tattoo on his left forearm of an apparent spread-winged eagle resembling a symbol used by the Nazis, and above it the tattooed word Fatherland in Gothic letters.

Then it optimizes your photos so you still have a lower-weighted copy on your phone. After they are uploaded and optimized, it asks your permission to delete the original photos from your phone, releasing the storage space.

At the four-way stop intersection at Smithville and Powell Roads in Eastampton Township, an area that used to be a big plot of grass has turned into a scenic stop. "We're a small town, but we do have distinctive character," Eastampton Mayor Rob Apgar said. "I see people actually pulling over to take pictures. . . . People never did that before. " It is not a park or monument that passersby are admiring; it's a stormwater basin. One of several in the township, the basin collects and infiltrates stormwater, but it has been naturalized, so it's covered in wildflowers instead of a green lawn.

Never mind that Lucy, without her consent, is being dropped from the billboard photo, ears and all. Stacy Janzer, 46, Long Beach Island Realtor and part of a builder family, Team J - or, as the license plate on her black Mercedes SUV says, because the proper spelling was already taken when she went to Motor Vehicles, Teem J - is replacing the photo on her "Got Realtor?"

DEAR ABBY: I'm concerned about a photo my uncle posted to Facebook. It features my two female cousins, ages 6 and 2, shirtless. I know no harm was intended in posting the photo, as they are both adorable girls. However, I find it inappropriate that the 6-year-old - who is going into first grade - was shirtless in the photo. Now that it is on the internet, it could be easily seen by a pedophile. How do I express my concern to my uncle about this without coming off as if I were trying to parent for him?
