Driving a vehicle that exceeds emission limits is not only illegal, but it also contributes to the already alarming amount of pollution coughing its way out of cars. The ASE-certified master technicians at Stanislaus Smog help solve this two-pronged problem with professional smog tests to keep emissions at bay. The team clamps monitoring devices to tail pipes of all types of vehicles, including gross polluters and out-of-state rides, checking not only for the amount of emissions, but also the types of pollutants. Once complete, the technicians can either approve autos for DMV renewals, title transfers, and soccer-team tryouts, or send them off to a repair shop to prepare for a second test attempt.
Launched more than three decades ago, Site for Sore Eyes now operates in more than 35 showrooms throughout the Bay Area. Staffers at every location share their dedication when pairing customers with head-turning eyewear and contacts. The company offers a $25 warranty that secures all of its products, replacing broken frames for free and furnishing half-price replacements for glasses that are lost, stolen, or transformed into an acorn squash. In case eyes require prescription tweaks, each shop sits next door to California-licensed Sterling VisionCare doctors of optometry.
Like all great duos, Blake and Katherine Weber of Open Arms Photography take advantage of each other's strengths. Blake relies on 15 years of experience behind the camera when capturing the spirit of newborns, couples, and families. With a degree in studio art, Katherine is also onsite for each shoot to design backgrounds, find a flattering light, pose the models, and edit the final product. They describe their style as lifestyle photography, as they aim to take photos that convey their subjects at their most natural.
A lot of photographers mimic a candid photo-journalistic style, but Kati Greaney is a true photojournalist. She strives to capture authentic scenes and situations from around the globe, whether she's composing a portrait of a smiling family or snapping a shot of a group of kids hanging out in the street in Cuba. She acknowledges that seeing a photo of a moment is different than actually being there, but she thinks that's a good thing. "Viewing things through a lens changes the way we look at the world," she says. "It ... encourages us to become a mediator."
