Thank you for all the ideas. We have some really interesting ideas proposed, and I am torn between the digital, and framed prints. Maybe I could do both. I really like the prints on glass, but I am a solo practitioner with an administrative assistant, and I am not sure I want to spend several hundred dollars; a few hundred dollars, maybe.

My televisions are older and do not have USB ports. Does this require special software on the USB flash drive, or does the television you use have sufficient RAM and a built in program to run a stream of photos? I might consider something like this that can easily incorporate new photos I take, over time.

I have a one-man law office. I would like to display some of my photographs for others to enjoy.

I am not very artistic. I have some folk art work and rotate it around the office so the same piece does not hang at the same place for years. You might see it in the reception area one year, or in one of the offices where I meet people another year. Several ideas have come to me regarding display of photos.
  1. I could have a digital photo frame to display in my reception area.

  2. I could print oversized photos, frame and hang them throughout the office, and rotate the stock. Framing can be expensive.

  3. I could contract a few photos to be printed on glass or metal (also expensive).


An exceptional photo of roses I made I adhered to foam board and stuck to one of the doors. It is a beautiful photo; but the display method - sticking it on a door -- is only a bit better than not displaying it.

I am searching for ideas.

Printing your work - do you own a printer or do you send to a lab?

I have a Canon Pixma Pro 100 printer. It is very slow, but produces high quality images. A variety of large-sized (and 4x6) papers can be used. It is not top of the line. It is inexpensive, but ink is expensive. It has eight (8) colored ink cartridges, so there are a lot of gradients of color that can be produced.

The Canon Pixma Pro 100 produces a professional quality image unlike the typical HP office Inkjet printers that print fast, and have a different set of desirable office features.

The ferry was free that summer, courtesy Iowa DOT.

I never went out to eat in Sabula. I mostly grew up in Dubuque, and now live in Manchester. My folks grew up in Jackson County.

Gotta love the pest control in your photo of Bombfire Pizza. In addition to the fly strips, is there a snake catcher in overhead storage?

During the latter stages of the Great Flood of 1965, I remember a big day of extended family fishing the flooded backwaters of the Mississippi near Green Island. My grandparents and I caught 29 fish, mostly bullheads. I was 8. I didn't clean fish then, and didn't know the extent of thw work involved. Poor Grandpa was stuck cleaning the catch. A couple of my cousins captured two huge frogs that day, they ate the legs. My uncle lost his fishpole in the river and unforgettably went in after it in his skivvies.

Some folks were shooting carp with bow and arrow. I am sure you have seen that spectacle in Sabula.

Yes, it is definitely a 1980s Pentax K-mount. Here is the Focal lens mount and front lens (K-Mart product) gifted to me as a graduation gift in 1983 with my Pentax ME Super.

Your photos are magnificent. If I had a $20 microscope I wouldn't know how to hook it up to a camera. I would have no idea how to put a snowflake under the lens. Yet tonight, we have a plethora of snowflakes falling.

I like it. In the United States I don't think we have glens, or maybe my vocabulary is limited. I know it is a word; I just don't know its meaning. Nevertheless an interesting photo.

Incidentally, trout, are a type of salmon fish, which is not commonly known. We have trout in inland streams here in Iowa.

Thank you kindly for your response. I downloaded the manual when the K-3 arrived. I searched it for the term "gray," and some others, but I couldn't find the answer. I did not have time to read the entire manual. We have some very knowledgeable people here. I do appreciate the time you took to post a possible solution.

K-3 Menu Settings Grayed Out

Most of my menu settings are grayed out, and I cannot change them. This is a new to me camera from about 2-months ago with low shutter actuations.

Any ideas how to access the grayed out menu items?

For example, in Menu 1, only Memory Card Options, and Image Capture Settings can be adjusted. The other 4 items are gray.

For example in Menu 2, the only thing open for change is GPS. The other 5 are gray. I could go on, but I doubt it would be helpful.

In the USA we call these critters muskrats. I see from Wikipedia in Europe they are an invasive species, imported from North America.

I have not reviewed the video but in the lower right corner I was initially confused by the ground devices pointed away from the tower, which made me think there might be other towers. I initially was thinking the ground devices would move with the sun.

As a child I burned leaves, ants (sorry folks), and paper with a magnifying glass. I had no idea mirrors could concentrate solar heat too. My childhood experiments were the childhood experiments of serious engineers who used their similar childhood experiments to generate heat, turn turbines, and create energy. Ants were defiled in their education, but mankind, and the planet benefited.

Thanks for the explanation. I checked out every one of your posts trying to figure out what on earth brought you to Sabula, pop. 576, since there was no other area photo that you posted. You posted more urbain and far distant areas. I will share this from my last visit to Sabula when the bridge was out.

I did not know anyone other than me carried a Pentax camera into Sabula. :) Nice photo. My grandparents used to take me fishing to Sabula when I was a kid. It is a poor little river town but a really cool river town.

Nature Grand Canyon National Park - Elk
Posted By mroeder75

Not really smart. Just helping transport my daughter 1,500 miles to her internship in December. It was her desire to take a side-trip. I did minimal research for the side-trip before we arrived.

The South Rim was packed New Years Eve. There were quite a few foreign nationals here, too. Maybe they are here on a longer visa, but I was surprised at the extent of travelers out in a pandemic. It was my first trip to the Grand Canyon. The hotels were just about full when we arrived around 8:30 p.m. Over 90% were wearing masks outdoors, so I felt comfortable that people were taking precautions.

We walked the main viewing area near the parking lots then drove north a mile or two, where oodles of cars were parked roadside around some elk. We drove a bit farther and parked in a tiny lot near a hiking trail. These elk, from the same herd, where the cars were parked south of us, were spread all they way up to where we parked. We walked in a bit, and I got these pics. The harem was stretched out over 1/4 mile. There must have been 20 antlerless elk; one guy said he walked south, and found the lucky full rack bull and he got within 10-yards of it, and so we started walking in the direction he pointed, then thought better of it. I am from Iowa. I have known people severely injured by bovine bulls, i.e. domestic animals. I don't know elk, but I think I know something about alpha male animals keeping a harem in-line. The female elk were placid, and seemed very comfortable around people.

We did some hiking. It was beautiful but I did not know we were at over 7,000 feet, did not drink liquids, and got altitude sickness on our trip south out of the Canyon.

My daughter told me her friend's dad witnessed a death by falling here, and he will not return. We saw some crazy people posing on the edge of the canyon. I was in no mood to go over the edge New Years Eve.

It was my first trip here.
