Microsoft Casual Games & Microsoft India Development Group, 2006

These are two snapshots from a spontaneous 2006 photoshoot in the Microsoft Willows cafeteria.

Microsoft Casual Games, of which Carbonated Games Studio was a part, was honoring the departure of visiting Microsoft India Development Group partners. With little notice (so some key people are missing), the photo shoot was announced and held.

Carbonated Games, as visited by "Flat Terek" in 2006

This is a series of photos taken of Microsoft's Carbonated Games Studio on Willows Road, Redmond WA. These were taken for my nephew, Terek, who had sent a paper doll of himself -- "Flat Terek" -- and asked that Flat Terek be photographed having adventures. The pictures form a snapshot-in-time of Carbonated Games Studio.
