I just got back from a really fun shoot at Komatsu UK of a visiting client arriving by helicopter. Hugh of HE Services has his own mode of transport to their annual meeting held on the Komatsu site. I had gritty eyes and a dusty lens but got some fab results! Next there will be some wondrous photoshop work to place him above his team…. (health and safety said ‘NO’! to such a composition!) Watch this space!
And for a bit of helicopter trivia swiped from Wikipedia, the wordÂ helicopterÂ is adapted from the FrenchÂ hÃ©licoptÃ¨re, coined by Gustave de Ponton d’Amecourt in 1861, which originates from the Greek helix/helik-Â (á¼Î»Î¹Î¾) = “twisted, curved”Â andÂ pteronÂ (ÏÏÎµÏÏÎ½) = “wing”. (well I am baffled…surelyÂ helicopters didn’t exist in 1861…..)
