Art Print Notes:
If you’re here, you’re probably hunting for a memorable print of the landmark King and Queen Towers in Sandy Springs, Georgia. This one was the end-result of a passion to capture something striking and different from the usual. During my first few years in Atlanta, I passed by these towers heading north on Georgia 400 every day and they sort of became part of my daily life. I’m sure there are a lot of people who pass those towering skyscrapers with the same feeling – never mind those of you who work there!
That was the reason, capturing the beauty of the King and Queen Towers became something of an obsession for a couple of years there. On weekends, I drove through the surrounding streets looking for the perfect perspective. And although I liked some of my earlier work featuring these buildings, it was after this one moment that I more or less quit. I didn’t see myself surpassing this anytime soon. Just look at those amazing skies! Yes, I sat and waited for dusk to fall but the skies, those were pure magical chance. It’s the sort of thing you don’t conjure up every day and the reason, I’m sure, that this is one of my most popular prints from the Atlanta area. Not only is this a beautiful angle that highlights the striking architecture, it has a deep dusk sky to die for. Just look at those clouds, the warm glow. Doesn’t it make you feel exhilarated?
There are few buildings in the greater Atlanta area that captured my imagination like the King and Queen towers. Those are actually the unofficial names of Concourse 1 & 2 in Sandy Springs near the intersection of GA 400 and I-285, the perimeter roadway that rings Atlanta. In fact, I suspect the bulk of people in the Atlanta area only know them as the King and Queen buildings – a moniker owed to the distinctive spires of the two buildings. Don’t they look like massive chess pieces?
The King and Queen Towers are actually part of the suburban landscape, not part of the city center, which might surprise some not familiar with Atlanta. The last I knew, these were still the tallest suburban high rise buildings in the USA. Even if they’ve since been surpassed in height, it’s hard to imagine them being passed in class!
If you have a moment, I would love to hear what drew you to this particular print? Do you just love the architecture? Is it the drama of the lighting and skies? Or do you or a loved one have offices in one of the towers? Inquiring minds want to know!
Wonder what past print buyers think?
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
I gifted my father with this piece (Troy’s Snack Shack Print) and he loves it! He thought the man in the doorway was him.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!! Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
Beautiful! Love it! Five stars!!! Many thanks! 🙂

Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!

The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
I purchased this pair of Tisdale artwork (Dawn Divides and Contemplating Life) for a wedding gift. The couple are getting married this summer in a facility on the Chattahoochee in Roswell, GA. This pair of photos on canvas is going to mean so much to them. I could not be more pleased to give them as a gift to my son and new daughter-in-law.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. … It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
