My husband recently reminded me that we should start gathering photos to display at our son's high school graduation celebration. Even though part of me wanted to delay this task in hopes that it would postpone the event, I knew my husband was right. It was time to look for photos. My hat is tipped to scrap-booking enthusiasts. I never seem to be together enough to crop and cut and paste or whatever it is they do at those all-night gatherings. Most of my children's photos from the early days are still in boxes.

I distinctly remember trying to decide between a brown wrap and a rust wrap. The photographer was so nice. She allowed me to wear both. Not at the same time, of course. After all, this was a senior photo that would be published in the high school yearbook. The memories from that day came flooding back as I browsed through catalogs of poses and backgrounds for my son's senior portraits. We were in the waiting area of a local photographer's studio, surrounded by photos of teenagers ready to face the world.

If a congressman hadn’t already confessed to posing for stud-muffin photos and using them to troll for chicks on CraigsList, I wouldn’t have given this Anthony Weiner story a second thought. But now, when I see that a congressman stands accused of sending photos of his loincloth-draped hm-hm to a young, female Twitter follower — well, for politicians, there is no longer a presumption of innocence where matters of gross behavior are concerned. As of this moment, if you are a public office holder, I think we all automatically assume that you are, as we speak, downloading topless drawings of Peppermint Patti.

Chance encounters and glances often result in great photos. Such as the time Greencastle, Pa., resident Ed Dyson spotted a juvenile great horned owl while trout fishing or the moment when Erin Spahr, of New Market, Md., caught her 11-month-old son peeking out the doggie door. These are some of the moments on today's Gallery page, but we're looking for more of the best recent photos from the Tri-State area. So many amazing things - big and small - happen in the area that we don't get to see. This is a chance for amateur photographers to share their talent.

Trying to take a good family photo is a difficult enough feat to accomplish. Imagine how James Ivey feels every three years when he's tasked with the job of capturing Greencastle's growing town family during the Official Old Home Week group photo. “We get here about 10:30 (a.m.) or 11 (a.m.), and it's totally deserted,” said Ivey. “At 11:25 (a.m.), there are 2,000 people in the plaza. I don't know where they come from, but it's wonderful,” he said with a chuckle. Ivey, owner of Central Photo Co. in Washington, D.C., has been taking the town's official photo since the 1970s.

Blankets and pillows that concealed the body of Vickie Clem did little to cover up evidence of a violent struggle that resulted in the Falling Waters, W.Va., woman's death. In the trial that began Wednesday for one of two men charged with Clem's murder, Trooper J.D. See of the West Virginia State Police testified that the walls and the ceiling of the master bedroom where Clem, 57, was found on May 27, 2011, were splattered with blood. Images of the bloody crime scene at 81 Vinca Lane, accompanied by See's description of them, were shown to a jury of seven men and five women who were sworn in the morning for the trial of Roy L. Wisotzkey of Hagerstown.
