DIGNAPIN

When you mount the remains of a Zero Image pinhole camera on a Dacora Digna you wind up with this monstrosity.
It's recycling at its best.



A drill. Some bolts and silicone caulking. That's all it takes.


The photos of the Dignapin were taken with a Jupiter 9 (f2 85 mm) mounted on a Nikon D50.
An appropriate contraption for photographing the Dignapin.



The Jupiter 9, by Kiev, is supposed to be a copy of the pre-war f2 85mm Zeiss Sonnar. I don't know about that but it's an interesting lens.

SWIMMING POOL AT BOARDED UP MOTEL - GREENFIELD - MA
The Candlelight Motel is no more. Portions of its roof have collapsed and no one swims here anymore. The pool walls are covered with skateboard themed graffiti.
Stories from the old Candlelight are lost in the past.

"You're in room sixty one, Mister and Missus, uh Smith."
"Is that room in the rear of the Motel ?"
"Yes, it is"
"O.K."
