About This Image:
Somewhere in the endless sea of trivia in my brain there’s a notation that Chicago is considered by some to be the birthplace of the modern skyscraper. Apparently the soil along the Chicago Waterfront of Lake Michigan is particularly good for building tall buildings and they have grown like wildflowers there every since. Of course skyscrapers have grown up since far from the Chicago Waterfront, but it’s still neat to look at all those skyscrapers beneath dusk skies and know this is where it all started on the shores of Lake Michigan.
For a period of time, I commuted frequently to Chicago for business. There weren’t a lot of chances to sight-see, but I did manage to get down to the Chicago waterfront on Navy Pier once to see what turned out to be a phenomenal dusk. The skies over Chicago’s skyscrapers were a wild mix of colors as day turned to night, and the city lights reflecting in the waters of the lakefront was absolutely dreamy.
I will always remember the early spring night that I was out on the pier watching the skies change colors over the Chicago Waterfront. I was literally lying on my belly on the pier while taking this photo. The perspective from down there took full advantage of the reflecting waters of the lake. Just look at those colors! The skies and water are a wash of blues, pinks, purples, gold… And that perspective also helped create the great leading line of the pier lights to the city skyline. But the most humorous and heartening thing was the number of people who saw me lying there and came to check if I was alright. You hear so many stories about people in big cities not going out of their way to help someone in distress. Yet it was laughable how many people came by to ask if I was okay in the short minute or two I lay there capturing this beautiful lakefront print of Chicago rising up from the waters.
Have you also gazed up at the dusk skies over the Chicago Waterfront? I’m guessing it is unlikely you were lying on your stomach at the time? Maybe the beautiful colors and the city lights in this skyline print win you over despite never having been on the shores of Lake Michigan? Whatever the case, I hope you will take a second to share what speaks to you most about this Chicago print!

It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
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.
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 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. 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!!
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!
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 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.
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.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.

Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
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.
