Matt Zencey is a former Inquirer editor who lives in West Chester When you first look at one of J Henry Fair's photographs, you're not sure what you're seeing. In one, a big splotch of white bleeds into a wide expanse of luminous, deepening green colors. Etched throughout with wavy rivulets, it looks like a detail from a Georgia O'Keeffe flower painting. Another shot features a skewed rectangle full of reddish shades and splotches that could have come from the work of the abstract expressionist Mark Rothko.

As a Philadelphia Traffic Court judge, Fortunato "Fred" Perri Sr. cultivated a public image as a tough guy. His nickname was "the Terminator" - a reflection of his supposed willingness to jail bad drivers. But for a favored few, Perri couldn't have been friendlier. "When you call, I move, brother, believe me," he allegedly assured a Southwest Philadelphia businessman said to be in league with him in the fixing of tickets. "It will be all right. Don't worry about it," he reportedly told the same businessman on another occasion, assuring him that a ticket would be fixed as promised.

Lawyers for a Philadelphia priest and an ex-parochial-school teacher on Tuesday began a two-pronged defense to convince a Common Pleas Court jury that their clients' personalities were inconsistent with those of men who would rape a 10-year-old altar boy.

THE AMBER ALERT system was activated Tuesday after 5-year-old Na'illa Robinson was abducted from her school, but why wasn't her picture included in the alert when it was broadcast on local TV stations? State Police received the information from local police - including a photo of Na'illa - at 7:58 p.m. Monday and activated the Emergency Alert System (EAS) at 8:28 p.m., State Police spokeswoman Maria Finn said. A limitation of the EAS system is that it isn't built to transmit images, only text and audio, which is what most people in the Philadelphia area and beyond saw come across their television that night, Finn said.

WASHINGTON - For House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the swearing-in of a record number of Democratic women was a historic moment worth a photograph. And, she decided, history needed a little digital help. After only 57 of the 61 congresswomen showed up in time for the photo scheduled Thursday on the Capitol's steps, Pelosi's aides digitally inserted images of the four absent members into the photograph. She then had the altered image posted on her Flickr photo-sharing site. Journalists and historians frown on such altered views of history.

NEWTOWN, Conn. - This, residents say, is a special town. Why, exactly? They'll point you to the town's prized flagpole, which stands in the middle of an intersection on Main Street. They'll mention the Newtown General Store, purveyor of locally grown delicacies and piping-hot coffee. They speak fondly of $2 movie nights at the town hall, tree lightings at Christmas, and parades on Labor Day. Then there's tiny Sandy Hook, a bit of small-town Americana that could have sprung, fully formed, from a Norman Rockwell painting.

MOSCOW - President Vladimir V. Putin delivered his state of the nation address Wednesday, and he made conditions in his country sound enviable - a view immediately rejected by his critics. "We will implement everything we planned," Putin said, describing a Russia committed to democracy, where corruption would be fought, more jobs would be created, affordable housing would be built and pay would be increased. "He has repeated all the unfulfilled promises he has made in the course of his 13 years in power," Vladimir Ryzhkov, an opposition politician, wrote in his blog, pointing out that new points included promises to improve spirituality and collegiality.

You may be fine with your smartphone's onboard camera software, and maybe the popular Instagram photo-edit-and-post app, but there are many alternatives to them. Here are a few. Snapseed , a photo-editing app for Android and Apple devices from Nik Software, is now free. It used to cost $5, but Google Inc. bought Nik this year and has tuned the app to work smoothly with the Google+ social network. Some longtime users say the heart of the app remains about as it was, and it happily posts to Facebook (which owns Instagram)
