Rando building in Bangalore
I just liked the wavy lines. Very Gaudiesque
Nice brew club and eatery. Got a nice tall, cold beer and some food with the guys. Good times.
Lots of pretty trees here in Bangalore... if you can take your attention away and look up from the deadly traffic.
Zoom in to the top. The Zynga sign is up there. Zynga has 4 out of the 5 floors in this building. Very nice digs and very well air conditioned!!! YES!!!
Zynga Bangalore Culinary!
Totally yummy food made in a very small space.
Lunch at Zynga Bangalore
Buffet style... yum!
Rooftop, covered lunch area

In the lobby.
Todd and Roger hard at work
Locals going to work
One morning before work, I took a stroll around the block and took this shot of a dude probably on his way to work.
Street scene with brick fence
I used the HDR filter in Photoshop and probably bumped up the color a bit too much. But I like it.
This dude was pushing this cart in the street with traffic. Balls!
These two dogs looked so cute until I said something to them and they started barking super loud at me. They're still cute though.
Very cool arcade with ridable VR rides. Here, Todd Owens, one of my fellow designers, is strutting towards us.
Well, not really. The whole place is lit under black lights. Very cool. Here, Olivier Courtemanche, our PM lead, bowls a spare! Nice shot!
Pano from Zynga's rooftop
Excellent cityscape from atop Zynga.
Zynga India Culinary
Here, this guy was making Roti and tossing the dough in the air to spin/enlarge the disk.
On the way to the Cricket match
Sidewalk in this stretch was blocked off/closed for some stupid reason. So we swam upstream against traffic. A totally relaxing , worry-free walk. Yes.
Also on the way to the Cricket match
A big 3 way intersection. Totally confusing who is supposed to go so they all go... at the same time!
Pano from where I sat at the Cricket match
Big stadium, big field, big fun!
Fans cheering a homerun
RCB, Royal Challengers Bangalore, scores a homerun (which equals 6 runsQ)! RCB! RCB! RCB! RCB! RCB! RCB!
