Art Print Notes:
While living in Atlanta, it occurred to me that I had traveled across the seas and came back with what I hoped were iconic scenes of these faraway places. Yet, I never did that at home. I took photos locally of course, but those local scenes didn’t tend to be landmarks by any stretch. When I lived in Atlanta, my weekends were far more likely to be spent hunting for nearby landscapes. But why not focus some attention on local landmarks? Now, it’s open to interpretation what is iconic, of course, but this is how my Atlanta Icons series was born.
This particular entry in that art print series is from Atlanta’s bohemian neighborhood, Little Five Points. This is a scene that probably requires no introduction to people who have visited or lived anywhere near where Moreland, McLendon and Euclid meet. This, of course, is the entrance to the Vortex, a great burger join in the heart of L5P. Little Five Points is delightfully full of uniquely designed exteriors but the skull that forms the entrance to the Vortex always comes to my mind first. I think it’s the single architectural feature I recall seeing when I rode into L5P for the first time in my early days living in Atlanta. How about you? What’s your first memory from the streets of Little Five Points?
Now as I’ve moved away from Atlanta, I have to admit this has become a nostalgic print for me, reminding me of those early years after college. It makes me even more glad to have spent some time capturing the local highlights. Yet, I’ve had people who chose this print who had never wandered the streets of Atlanta. So, it definitely has dramatic appeal beyond those nostalgic for their days in Little Five Points.
Wonder what past print buyers think?
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.

Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
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.
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!
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!!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
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!
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!
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!

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.
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’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
