Recently, I decided to do a task that has been on my job list since June: Sort family photographs and put them into albums. I carried up boxes of photos and half-finished albums stored in the basement. I emptied drawers where I had stashed more pictures. I took down shoe boxes filled with photos from closet shelves. Every time I thought I had them all, I'd discover another box. Soon our dining-room table was buried under half-filled albums and loose snapshots. More pictures littered the floor and threatened to drift into the living room.

Almost anybody nowadays can take a technically professional picture. For less than $200, it is possible to buy a professional-quality camera with a lens that has automatic focus to ensure that the pictures are sharp, automatic aperture to ensure that the pictures will be properly exposed, and even automatic, self-adjusting flash to ensure that enough light will be available. About the only thing the photographer needs to do is to remember to unload the film and take it to the lab for processing.

Cows, pigs and Philadelphia is the answer. And the question? Why is photographer David Lorenz Winston suddenly such a hot commodity? All 294 suites in the newly opened Hawthorn Suites Hotel, 11th and Vine Streets, feature at least two lithographic enlargements of Winston photographs of the city. Some rooms have three. Six 1999 calendars feature his work, including the Fairmount Park calendar. One calendar has nothing but pig pictures, another just cows. The other three are sheep, goats and horses.

Inaugural exhibits commonly take refuge in the past. But not the one that opens at the Widener University Art Museum on Tuesday - eight days after Chester's newly elected leaders took office. That exhibit, featuring paintings by Wallingford's Randall L. Exon, clearly looks to the future and salutes this city and its 42,000 inhabitants in optimistic terms. In these landscapes, still lifes and figure paintings, Exon, who teaches art at Swarthmore College, presents us with something mildly stimulating to memory and the imagination, possibly poetic and certainly picturesque.

The third Challenge exhibition of the 1989-90 season at the Fleisher Art Memorial offers one unusual strategy and two variations on more familiar ones. Of the latter, one is carried off with brio and conviction; the other is earnest but flawed by ingenuousness. The novelty is supplied by photographer Judith Taylor. Her 18 black-and- white prints, most of them figure studies, can be considered portraits of a sort, although the subjects are depicted only from the chin down, so they remain anonymous.

Shoeboxes packed with photographs, slides and negatives crowd the basement, closets and drawers of Daniel J. Kelly's home. The cramped cardboard boxes are filled with samples of Kelly's favorite hobby - photography. After 14 years and countless rolls of film, Kelly has an award to store with all the memories. Kelly was one of 27 amateur and professional photographers to win a competition sponsored by the Pennsylvania Heritage Affairs Commission. "Photography is the best way I know of to share an experience with someone who isn't there with you," said Kelly, who lives with his wife and two children in the 9300 block of Outlook Avenue in Academy Gardens.

A Montgomery County Court jury took a brief visual tour of society's darker reaches yesterday with the showing, in open court, of the child-pornography images allegedly seized from the office computer of an Episcopal priest. The grainy, mostly black-and-white photos of young boys engaged in sexual acts with one another and with men were flashed onto a large-screen television during the trial of the Rev. Robert K. Orr. Jurors betrayed no emotion as the pictures flashed across the screen.

In the old city, treasures are hidden everywhere, as workers refurbishing the Jones New York store at 1711 Walnut St. discovered last week. Peeling off a portion of its plain-Jane facade, they got a peek at something bright. What could it be? They peeled off more sheet metal. What was revealed, sitting in a neat row above the shop window, were five large, colorful terra-cotta pictures depicting sailing ships. They peeled off more sheet metal, revealing that the pictures were part of a striking art deco facade that extended to the fourth floor.

Michael "Mike Reno" Garbesi, 53, a freelance photographer of political, entertainment and sports stars, died Tuesday at his home in South Philadelphia. Mr. Garbesi, known throughout Philadelphia as "Mike Reno," often cruised the city with cameras hanging off his neck and a press pass identifying him as a representative of the Philadelphia Exclusive News. "He was a self-employed freelance photographer and sold advertisements for the paper," said J.J. Palumbo, owner of the Exclusive News.

There's a difference between reading about the Lower Merion School District's "Webcamgate" scandal and discovering that you're a part of it. Just ask Jalil Hasan, a college-bound Lower Merion High graduate who said that he found out this month that his school-issued laptop had been secretly recording his online activity and snapping pictures of him and his family inside their Ardmore home. For nearly two months straight. "When I saw those pictures, it really freaked me out," the 18-year-old aspiring restaurateur said.
