You need to use your imagination as much as your eyes when viewing the three-artist exhibit "Seeing Differently: Abstractions" at the Bernice Kish Gallery at Slayton House. Although these artists provide the occasional figurative reference, they mostly rely on colorful abstract forms to prompt you to see things in the mind's eye. Look quickly at Karen Carpenter 's acrylic painting "Flamenco" and you see a jagged-edged red form set against a yellow background. So far, so abstract.

Baltimore police are investigating how an image that appears to be a murder victim's wrapped body was posted to the Facebook page of the accused killer - while he was behind bars. The image posted to the Facebook page of 28-year-old Jermaine Jackson around 4 p.m. Monday shows a large object on a basement floor wrapped in a sheet and plastic. That's how police said the body of his boyfriend Andre Nicholas, also 28, had been found by officers after Jackson allegedly confessed to his mother that he had stabbed Nicholas.

The civil rights movement was full of dynamic and evocative images. Today, even many of us born after its iconic moments were captured on film can describe Martin Luther King Jr.'s outstretched arm pointing a sea of people toward a future decades beyond the short span of his life, or German shepherds in Birmingham ripping into black skin, as if we had watched these events live. But 50 years after the March on Washington, one local institution is helping audiences revisit this period in American history and examine details that were largely overlooked.

The decision last week by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Police Commissioner Anthony Batts to call in federal investigators to probe allegations of excessive use of force and other misconduct by Baltimore police is as embarrassing as it was unavoidable. No city attempting to polish its image as an attractive place to live and work wants to admit having a problem with police brutality it can't handle. But since a six-month investigation by The Sun uncovered evidence of a dysfunctional department seemingly inimical to reform, it's been apparent that the city needs help.

In three weeks, representatives from the Assad regime and the opposition are scheduled to convene in Geneva to begin the process of negotiating peace in Syria's civil war - five months after the government's chemical weapons attacks killed more than 1,400 people. The atrocities were depicted in a series of casualty photographs and videos that circulated globally on news and social media, and they provoked the threat of military action against the Assad government by the United States.

Two news websites Monday published images of the three of the most secretive U.S. agencies including the Maryland-based National Security Agency. Outside of a single undated image provided by the NSA  - which has been used repeatedly by The Sun and other media outlets for years - the agency's Fort Meade headquarters has not been extensively photographed.  Under the cover of darkness, artist Trevor Paglen used a helicopter last fall to photograph the National Security Agency in Fort Meade; the National Reconnaissance Office in Chantilly, Va.; and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency in Springfield, Va. "My intention is to expand the visual vocabulary we use to 'see' the U.S. intelligence community," Paglen wrote of the project.

Seconds after a passenger stepped through an advanced-imaging machine at a BWI Marshall Airport security checkpoint, an image of a human body popped up on a video screen. It did not show the passenger's body as it appears under his clothing. No physical imperfections or private parts were in sight. And that is the point of the new technology demonstrated Friday at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. The image, displayed where both the passenger and a security officer could see it, bore little resemblance to the graphic depictions of individuals that have aroused the anger of many fliers.

A longtime deacon at a Fullerton church was charged Friday with possessing "numerous files of child pornography," Baltimore County police said. William Steven Albaugh, 67, a deacon at St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church on Belair Road, was arrested at his Nottingham home at 7:45 a.m. Police had searched Albaugh's Treadway Court home and said they found images of children on his Verizon Online account and on thumb drives. Police do not believe that children at St. Joseph's were victims.

America today is all about perception and 140-letter characterizations. Categorization is a natural human tendency in all things. However, knee-jerk categorization of candidates for political office without a real knowledge of them as people can be a mistake by the voter with long term negative consequences ( "Report: Md. governor's race among nation's most negative," Sept. 30). Image is everything today but the voter must stop and think. Is this really the candidate or the image that the candidate is consciously or unconsciously projecting?

With my job as a cartoonist and columnist for one the nation's biggest newspapers comes a modicum of minor celebrity, but I can't imagine a big market for naked pictures of myself. This is not the case for true celebrities, such as Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna, who, along with as many as 100 others, had private nude photos of themselves stolen from Apple's iCloud storage system and posted for public perusal online. Whether the hackers who did this were out to make money or simply to prove their technological prowess, they caught the attention of the FBI, which is now investigating.

For all the revolutionary technological change rocking media these days, the TMZ video of Ray Rice punching Janay Palmer in a casino elevator is a stark reminder of the enduring and awesome power of the image. The two punches Rice delivers to his then fiancee take up only about four seconds of actual video time, yet they instantly blew away more than seven months of speculation, spin, damage control and image building from high-priced attorneys, fellow players, sports-media sympathizers, the Ravens organization and the National Football League.

The recent dramatic rise in heroin overdose deaths has reached near epidemic levels in Maryland ( "Overdose deaths are preventable," Aug. 29). The commentary by Deanna Wilson, Stephanie Sparrow and Jennifer Kirschner is an important follow up to the views expressed by Sun columnist Dan Rodricks , who questioned the accuracy of the reported number of heroin addicts in Baltimore ( "Heroin capital claim based on an old, bad number," Aug. 28). Regrettably, it appears that the rest of America has caught up with Baltimore's widespread substance abuse problem.

Satellite images of the storm that caused historic flooding in Baltimore and other parts of the Northeast show a system massive enough to rival some tropical storms that have hit the region. The image above was taken Tuesday from several orbits of the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership, or Suomi NPP, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellite. See the original here , along with other NOAA satellite images. The system stretched from the Great Lakes to the mid-Atlantic coast to New England.

As a high school student, I am in full agreement with Alexandra Della Santina in that an astonishing number of girls spend nearly all of their time focused entirely on their appearance ( "Don't hate me because I like myself," July 8). Being able to state, "I think I'm pretty," should absolutely not inspire a pang of guilt. However, possessing the self-assurance to declare such "taboo" words will not launch you into a mindset of confidence when you spend your entire days in hallways full of girls that all share the deep desire to be a pant size 00. In order to fix that problem, we need to focus on what caused this generation of girls to focus so steadily on nothing but their appearance.

The first images of Earth as seen from space, appearing as a swirly blue marble, were groundbreaking. Now NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have published photos of Earth by night using infrared imaging technology via satellite. The images show what is now a fairly familiar view of clusters of city lights, but what is different is it shows those twinkling lights from afar across the entire globe. You can see the darkened planet at various vantage points, as well as in an animated video, at NASA's Earth Observatory website . You can also view them in a gallery in the Sun's Darkroom photo blog . They were gathered through a partnership between NASA and NOAA.

When Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts appeared at a recent town hall, a woman stood to ask about police brutality, a touchy topic for both residents and officers. She said she worried for her young nephew, who was frequently stopped by police. Batts' 10-minute answer ranged from the personal to the practical. He talked about his upbringing in South Central Los Angeles, drawing laughs about the fried bologna sandwiches his family ate to survive. He explained why people must sit cross-legged on curbs for officer safety, but understood police interactions can be demeaning for those detained.
