About This Image:
I read that most of the Gargoyles on our modern day Notre Dame, although historically accurate, are not original. Most of the gargoyles had been lost to the ravages of time and changing tastes. I don’t know whether this bored gargoyle is an original medieval design or part of the 19th century renovations, but his droll expression immediately caught my attention when I arrived on the roof of Notre Dame cathedral.
I love how much detail was put in the carving of these gargoyles. Consider that until tourists started trekking to the top of these churches, no one without binoculars could have really seen this bored gargoyle. Yet he is an incredibly life-like amount of detai. I almost expected him to turn and tell me how tired he is of seeing the Parisian skyline day in and day out! Perhaps these very-human gargoyles were an inside joke for the craftsmen who built and rebuilt the cathedral over the hundreds of years it’s stood in the midst of the Seine? Or perhaps they were simply quite proud of their craft even if the results could be appreciated by a only a few.
I guess anything could get boring as long as our Gargoyle friend has been there, but looking at his view over those beautiful Second Empire buildings… Well, it’s hard for me to imagine being such a bored gargoyle. He must be pretty jaded not to see the beauty below him. I love the fairly uniform height of the Parisian skyline, and how it’s just punctuated here and there by a dome or steeple. There’s a very human symmetry to Paris that’s missing in our more modern metropolises of the world.
I don’t know what intention the original sculptor had in this pose for our bored gargoyle friend, but I’m so glad I had the chance to see and photograph it first hand. This print deserves to be seen and appreciated whether you’ve been to the top of Notre Dame in person or just dream of your chance.

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 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.
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.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
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.
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
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!
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
…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!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
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!

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.
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!
