About This Image:
This fife and drum corps print is based on a photo taken during my visit to beautiful Colonial Williamsburg some years ago. History is one of those things I can’t help geeking out about. From American history and beyond. In the case of my trip here, it was specifically because I wanted to visit nearby Jamestown because of my own family history. Jamestown was of course fascinating, but Williamsburg was just pure fun – a sort of living history theme park with authentic Colonial American buildings mixed with ones rebuilt true to the originals. And of course, how many places can you see a Fife and drum corps marching down the streets pretty much any old day? For most of us, we’d be lucky to spot one on the Fourth of July and I’d put that in the exceedingly lucky category.
If you’ve been to Colonial Williamsburg, you’ll appreciate how little of this Fife and Drum corps print differs from the reality of being there. This is a street scene This is a street scene that would have likely looked little different in 1700 than it looks today. The same wood-timbered colonial shops and houses form the background then as today. And the subjects are a brightly garbed band that is likely beating out a military field music popular in the period. There’s a magic to me in how this mingles the past and present. I think there’s something endearing to many of us of seeing scenes of our country from long ago. Certainly there’s an element of patriotic nostalgia. But on some level it’s like looking at pictures of yourself as you’ve aged. In this case, it’s a photo of the birth of our own country rather than a child.
If you’ve ever stood on the streets of Williamsburg, Virginia, fife and drum corps print is probably a fun reminder of a family vacation. But even if you haven’t this Williamsburg print may well appeal to those of us who simply love American history. Beyond the historical, I simply loved the vivid red outfits of the fife and drum corps. It’s such a bright pop of color that it reminds me of spotting a red bird in a tree. Such a cheerful but classic Williamsburg print.

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!
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.

Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
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.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
…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 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 got my print today, thank-you so much.
I 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!!
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.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
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!
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.
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 framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
