CLIPPER 40's and 50's
The Clipper is 99% metal and well made. It takes 6x6 images on 120 film.
It has a collapsing front. Double exposure prevention and flash synch.
The bright red
shutter button is reminiscent of the one on The Anscoflex.
The lens is coated and zone focuses. The "color/b&w switch"
simply switches between two iris openings.
Barn - Hadley MA
There are still a number of working farms in Hadley. I shot this
barn in bright sunlight and held a yellow filter over the lens.
Church - Brimfield MA
Yellow filter. Bright sun.
Grange Hall - Ware MA
The Rex Lounge - Chicopee MA
"Best Karaoke." That's contradiction in terms. An oxymoron.
Like, "most pleasant toothache, " or "happiest depression."
The ceiling in The Rex Lounge is painted bright red and you can get a
pitcher of Bud Light for $6.50.
Rail Line - Chicopee MA
I grew up near railroad tracks. The railroads were active then.
I used to walk the tracks next to The Middlesex Canal, carrying my
fishin' stuff. The coal cinders crunched beneath my feet and the
tar-soaked ties stuck to my sneakers. Whenever I walk old railroad
lines I feel terribly nostalgic.
These old crossing lights have been dark for decades. They
sit at the edge of a busy road and no one sees them anymore.
The shape of the shades over the lights reminds me of a baseball hat or
maybe a duck's bill. Railroad crossing lights are universal in America.
They look the same in Buxton Maine as they do in Tucson Arizona.
