NEXT: The Seance Room featuring Cassandra the Soothsayer and her Psychic celebration! 

This site is dedicated to the memory of S. Paul Lindau, my original mentor, for getting me started in animals, nature, photography, retouching, and airbrushing. Most of the knowledge in the history section came from him, filtered by memory and time. He started out as a photographer, retoucher and went on to do some of the cinematography seen in the early Disney nature films. In his spare time he was an electrical engineer at Western Precipitation, specializing in environmental dust & particulate removal from industrial emissions.
"Thanks" with love to you Paul...
