Chevron Refinery, Soon in a Hotel Near You

Chevron Refinery by night, soon in a hotel near you. Copyright: Miriam Mannak

Last week Friday, I sommer received a phone call from a guy who runs a graphic design business. One of his clients, the Radisson hotel folk, found one of my pictures online. They loved it so much, in fact, that they want to use it as the main artwork in their new City Park Hotel in Cape Town (in the CBD). How awesome is that? This is basically what they want to do with it:

* In the Hotel Lift Lobby on the Ground Floor, my image will be divided into 5 separate panels approx. 500mmx600mm)

* The lift lobbies on the other 9 floors, will feature 1 image from the panels downstairs

* My image will be printed and hung in the Passage Wall (again divided into 5 separate panels)

I think it is rather fantstic! The design company is meeting the client this morning, to discuss my terms and conditions. Let’s keep fingers crossed!

Now about the picture: I took took quite a while back at the Chevron refinery just outside of Cape Town. It is a night shot, taken on a tripod and with a long exposure. The red flare is a truck passing by (I was standing rather close to the road), and the yellow stripe is its headlights.

    Congratulations Miriam well done you…what…so now you are photographer already?

    Make sure you get a good deal don’t let them take advantage, if they think it is that good they will pay a fair price.

      Well, I have always been a keen photographer. My main income is generated through the production of words 🙂 Thanks for the comment – and yes, they are paying a fair price 🙂
