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.

and no one swims here anymore. The pool walls are covered with

Stories from the old Candlelight are lost in the past.

"Is that room in the rear of the Motel ?"
"Yes, it is"
