Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

Chain saw art

Ah yes, chain saw art. It's so... rustic. I photographed this fellow in Manitou Springs yesterday. I have driven past this fine establishment on Manitou Avenue countless times. They always have a couple dozen chain saw bears lined up in front for sale, just like this guy. I've never been tempted to stop until now. I thought it might make an entertaining photo for the blog.

I noticed that they have now branched out into gigantic chain saw garden gnomes. I didn't take a photo of one though, because I was freezing half to death and I just wanted to get back into my nice, warm car. So for today please just admire this bear. Another time I'll go back and shoot a gnome for you. :o)

Thanks for stopping. My daughter lives in Cotopaxi and has a couple of bears that look like they were made with chainsaws. Either that or the carver wasn't too good.

Nice photo.

I have never heard of chainsaw art before! I like the bear.
