Briar Rose in Walsall

A few months ago, I was approached by a company asking if one of their clients could use one of my photos, that they'd seen on flickr.  We agreed a fee and I sent them the photo -- a shot of Briar Rose coming down Ryder's Green Locks in June 2011.

They told me the photo was for the reception of a new Premier Inn in Walsall town centre.  I imagined it in a frame, along with a few other shots.  But looking at the hotel website, it appears that my photo is floor to ceiling on one wall.

It's tricky to be sure from this shot, but it looks as though the warehouses might have been photo-shopped out, and I think Adrian might have been removed from the helm.  I might have to go to Walsall to check...

Lovely picture, we will pop into Walsall to see it when we get home.

That's very impressive - maybe you should research other canalside hotels and sell them some photos - might pay for a pot of blacking sometime :-)
