Valero Refinery I

Client Brand Energy. Valero Refinery, Benicia, CA. I was not informed by my client that I would be required to wear safety glasses, hard hat and a full Nomex outfit in 100+ degree heat. My escort, who was not thrilled about his assignment, picked me up from HQ and walked away before I had a chance to get my gear ready. As he sped away, I raised the camera and shot this image without looking through the viewfinder while walking; it was the first of several thousand photos I made at this location. It was chosen by the company as their brand cover photo.

Having worked on a construction site several times I know the fun of the hard hats and safety goggles (and being in Florida you got to love the 100+ degree heat). An absolutely amazing photo and funny how it was the first image of the day.
