Greetings from new addition to LUGGERS, Elizabeth Wollenberg,
rusty photographer, School of Visual Arts 1977. They might be
ashamed of me the last few years but not for long. Lugger lurking
is my big warm up to getting on with my phot projects.  Otherwise
I'm an art therapist and artist. I paint on furniture and do funny

Photography owned me since age 8. For high school I begged to go to 
Cass Tech but no no no. Later, I made it to graduate SVA at the "late"
of 31, Ha.  And, have been included in 2 group shows and 1 solo.

Equipment: grandfather's 1900 box camera; Kodak Bantam needing repair-
a keepsake, 1930ish very basis Zeiss Ikon, Leica 3-something, very
worn Hassy someone didn't want & I do, Mamiya c330, some P&Ss and
working my way up in the visual world: Nikon F which I traded for
original CL, traded back and back again.  Good thing I married said

Would appreciate help here: CL's meter went south; battery test
doesn't function consistently. 8 years ago we sent it through Glazer's
for battery contact repair and cleaning--very expensive and the
was not cleaned. We wish we'd mailed it to Prof CameraRepair in NYC.
It's really failing now and we're forced to try somebody but won't
without the best recommendation. 

Anyone highly reputable in Seattle? 

Thanks for all I'm learning here,

Relearning is 10 times easier than learning the 1st time.
