The technicians at E & S Power Washing help transform the home through pulsating showers of pressurized water. High-pressure pumps shoot out focused streams of water that blast dirt, grime, and mildew from the home’s exterior, decks, and walkways. After whisking away surface dirt, technicians can paint, water proof, and seal wooden surfaces. Techs can also clean windows and provide minor cleanup services.
Manu and Ila Patel decided to share their recipes with others inside Krishna Catering & Restaurant. They stuff dosas (thin crepes) with cheese and vegetables and toss onions and jalapeños into uttapam (thick pancake) mix, creating dishes that helped the eatery earn the Best Vegetarian Restaurant award on the 2012 Detroit A List. Ila also blends Indian and Chinese flavors, dousing cheese cubes in Chinese sauce and sprinkling chili and soy sauces over veggies. Manu and Ila also cart their myriad dishes off site, catering weddings and celebrations held after passing court-mandated polygraph tests.
ASD WaterWorks specializes in property restoration for residential and commercial clients, whether that means removing stains from carpet or repairing damage from flooding or fires. For carpet cleaning calls, the staff relies on truck-mounted steam-cleaning devices to eradicate dust and allergens. In emergency cases, technicians strive for a response time of less than an hour, a practice that allows them to mitigate potential damage and to throw away their 6-month day planner marked "Future Emergency Appointments."

Subjects might pose with a favorite drum kit or neon pink guitar, or recline casually in their sports gear. Others might opt to pose by austere trees or in a park, capturing their love of nature or fear of anything green.
