Wow, what a weekend! After two exhausting days of shooting on Friday and Saturday, Sunday was just a short stop to take in the Mothers Supercar paddock before heading over to Cie Studios for a viewing party. Cie is the company responsible for Car Town, the most popular car game on Facebook. They have something like 8.5 million registered users spending time washing cars and street racing to earn enough virtual coinage to buy anything from an AMC Pacer to a Pagani Zonda Cinque.
Their office happens to be right across the street from the Grand Prix course and it offers great views of the track as well as a fun environment to watch the race on the numerous screens throughout the massive space. And speaking of that space, these guys know how to keep their workers happy and motivated. There are whiteboard cabinet doors for doodling over lunch, a putting green, a reception desk fashioned from a jet engine nacelle and conference room sliding doors that happened to have been the side of a jet fuselage at some point in its history. Great people too and they sure know how to throw a party.
After sorting through my photos, I found 45 that I think are really extraordinary. I've put them in their own album so you can just get to the good stuff if you don't have the time or patience to see the full album or even the highlight album and its 290 entries. I also have some video I shot this weekend as well. I hope you enjoy them.
