As I look over my last Blog entry I’m not sure where this year has gone all of a sudden.
It’s been on the whole another busy year although the late summer months did quieten down.
This allowed me time to continue my Life In A Somerset Landscape Project and shoot some other personal work like the shoot I’m posting here.
George Hider is an established artist working with metal which is often gathered from scrap that he has acquired.
Based on his farm near Merriott South Somerset he is a member of the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen.
Much of his work is inspired by his love of animals as was very evident when I visited.
Jonathan Hodgson combines his skills not only as a great artist but applies these talents to creating functional and custom arrows and some of which are art pieces.
His custom-made arrows are created to suit the archer’s bow, draw length and draw weight in lbs, and the type of archery they do, and personal preferences for colours and styles, etc.
His art arrows are built with Form in mind more than Function.
Back in February, I was approached by the marketing team at Numatic International who you probably know for their famous Henry Vacuum Cleaner brand.
They had the opportunity to showcase one of their commercial products on location in an Mc Donalds restaurant which was closed to the public during the Covid lockdown.
I come from a family of car lovers.
As a child, my father owned various sports and prestige vehicles over the years BMW’s, Lotus, Mercedes, and a beautiful Concours condition 1969 Porsche 911.
So it fair to say I share this family passion although there are no 911’s tucked in my garage just my 1969 Lambretta scooter.
