About This Image:
There was simply something about this view of Tybee Light from the beach on the Georgia coast that felt nostalgic to me. I can’t explain what it was. Maybe it was simply that I looked at it and felt nostalgic for my time on the beach? Maybe it was some ineffable quality of the image, but that sentimental air mixed with the sea air ultimately inspired the vintage direction I took with this artwork.
I’ve overlaid this image with a number of textures but the one layer that is ultimately providing the lettering and the weathered coloring of the final Tybee light print is courtesy of my grandmother being a wonderful pack-rat. That one layer is a genuinely old family letter written by my grandfather to my grandmother in the 1930’s. The old script and the vintage coloring gives this Georgia coast print an even more nostalgic air. It feels as if this print might be a taste of life from long ago on Tybee Island or perhaps an old postcard sent home from a visit to the coast. This was inspired at least in part by old postcards I have where my grandparents ran out of room and concluded their messages on the image!
The more I think about it, perhaps old lighthouses like Tybee Light are simply nostalgic because they represent the past to us, and one that has become in popular culture very romantic. They are artifacts of our old association with the sea. We picture the brave people who ran them and saved the lives of people on passing ships. Many of those historic lights still stand but as reminders of our collective past. And I think that collective sentiment is what this Tybee Light print ultimately taps.
Have you walked the beaches of Tybee Island? Do you feel as nostalgic for it as I do? Perhaps you’ve never been to Tybee but this lighthouse print pulls at your heart strings? I do hope you’ll take a second to share what speaks to you most in this print.

I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love 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!
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!
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.
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.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
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 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 just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
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!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
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 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’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
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.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
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.
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!!
