I agree with you re: the necessity of carrying it with me. Sonny Carter gets
many great shots because he carries his CL like a sidearm, and doesn't sit
too long in one place. Like you, I've got the wintertime blues (it is not as
cold here as most places, but it is wet and gloomy).

I recently picked up a CL on ebay, but am having some problems with it, not
the least of which are related to my being left-eyed, resulting in my
forehead turning the meter off when I use the viewfinder.

I'll check out your website. Let me know if the URL for the PAW page has
changed. If so, I'll update my link page. With the recent increase in the
number of PAW participants, (48 at last count, but most of them are named
Steve or Mike), I am using my link page to do a weekly PAW viewing rather
than wading through the morass of emails.
