Who built your website?   I built it using a notebook computer - on battery power, a web page editor, and within my vehicle, parked next to the ocean, (over he course of months) slowly built this website. I did use several books for reference,                   and researched the internet for specific questions not found in the books.
I am grateful to family and friends who gave me editorial suggestions.

capture some of the natural beauty of luminous places.

  How useful is an electronic air ionizer?     
Significant variables exist in the air: such as humidity, temperature  and pollutants: these determine the extent to which the air can be ionized. Also, the room (material chemical content)  can absorb - neutralize the generated air ions, and leave little or nothing left. Air ionizer technology varies in designs, efficiency  and potential.                                                                                                                                                       
                                           Mother nature is the best source for fresh "energetic air" (small air negative ions of oxygen).
