Checking The Shot

Photo by MacG
This sculpture is called Chimping - it's part of the Carpenter Avenue Classics Avenue Man series.  

"Chimping" is a colloquialism used in digital photography to describe the act of checking every photo on the camera's display screen immediately after taking the picture.  This piece has articulating arms, mimicking the gesture made by a human photographer.

It's an original piece - using parts from a discarded chainsaw - made exclusively for our photographer friend at LWNFA.
