About This Image:
There’s certainly no question that The Varsity is an Atlanta landmark and an iconic one at that. Years ago when I was first developing a passion for photography and visual art in general I set about working on a collection of images that I referred to with the rather ambitious series title, Atlanta Icons. There was little question in my mind that the large V of The Varsity sign should be included. Although I had visited the restaurant very soon after I moved to Atlanta, I would have known about The Varsity whether or not I had. After all, that large V sign stands over the downtown interstate connector in Atlanta. It’s a ridiculously hard to miss landmark if you’re visiting Atlanta or just trying to navigate through the city on your daily commute!
As a matter of fact, this landmark Atlanta print was partially responsible for giving me the motivation to make it as a visual artist. I submitted this Varsity print in the My Atlanta photography show in Piedmont Park in 2006. I was ecstatic when it got the award for best use of color in the show. That was one of my first awards. I think it may have actually been the first.
This Atlanta print has been popular in the decade that has passed, especially with Georgia Tech alumni. After all even though it has grown into a chain, the original Varsity is very much associated with the history of Georgia Tech students. But even those of us with no ties to Tech have a soft spot for traditions. And The Varsity at 90 years is certainly a local tradition. I have had countless Atlantans share fond memories of The Varsity – particularly of family they went there with.
I would love to hear what about this Varsity print speaks to you? Did it pique your interest because you are a former Tech student? Maybe it brings back warm memories of family or friends and times spent there having a chili dog or onion rings together?

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!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
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 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 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.
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
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!
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 framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
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 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!
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.
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 treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
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.
