Cars line up at the drive-thru window, where instead of bags of burgers and fries, staffers hand over bundles of glossy personal photos. Inside Creative Photo & Digital Imaging, digital techs convert media such as VHS tapes, records, and reels to DVD and CD, while across the store, photo experts transfer snaps onto album prints, museum-grade canvas wraps, and gifts such as coffee mugs and puzzles. Heirloom family portraits, ravaged by rips and sun damage, doff their imperfections in the photo-restoration lab, and an onsite portrait studio captures clans as they update their sweater sets through the years. Creative Photo & Digital Imaging also hosts photography classes on subjects from how to take better pictures on camera phones to the intricacies of digital SLR cameras.
When not framing a grinning client in his studio, Dave Parmalee heads to on-location shoots within the Fort Myers area. Whether working with newly engaged couples, collaborating with high school students taking their senior portraits, or creating headshots for aspiring secret agents, Dave applies an artistic eye to evoke his subject's essence. Lasting Impressions Photography captures memorable poses for customers, which are printed in-house at a full-color photography lab and framed at the nearby Frame Works, a full-service custom framing shop.
FrameWorks prepares art and memorabilia for wall appearances by enveloping them in fashionable custom mats and frames. Each piece of artwork luxuriates in the attention of experienced framers, who employ their eye for design and more than 40 years of combined framing experience to give each piece a custom home in which to reside until retiring to Barbados. Customers can peruse the shop’s display of more than 2,000 molding frames—including certified Larson-Juhl 22k gold frames—hundreds of mats, and nonglare, plexiglas, and UV–protection glass to discover a design that speaks to their personality, their home’s décor, and their invisible entourage. In addition to framing traditional print art and photographs, FrameWorks also assembles shadowboxes to commemorate special occasions such as weddings, concerts, and interplanetary vacations. Prices for custom framing vary based on size, mounting, mats, glass, and frame choice; the shop can outfit a 16"x20" image for anywhere from $100 to $500.
From early lunches to late-night eats, the staff at each of Yo! Taco's three locations pairs fresh guacamole with housemade chips and 1-pound burritos for its crowds. Colorful awnings and umbrellas lure patrons lounging on the beach or hiding in English Tudor sand castles to outdoor dining areas where they sample from the menu of made-to-order tacos piled with sirloin steak, chicken, and pico de gallo. In addition to soda and iced tea, the servers also pour beer, wine, and sangria to accompany homemade queso and chicken quesadillas.
