    I find it utterly amazing that a chain saw can create such beautiful are. I like the way you photographed this. Shooting upwards as you did seems to make her larger than life, and adds importance to the nurse’s war efforts

  • I felt the same, and there are a dozen or so of these chainsaw carvings, each from a different tree – pretty much have to shoot up as the carvings start above head height – glad you like the shot – thankyou
