Work Photo Contest


On the Microsoft Redmond, the walls are covered with art from Microsoft’s massive art collection. In Microsoft Dublin, we’ve been in a new building for less than a year and the walls are, other than 80+ LCD TVs showing company news, mostly bare of art. All that changed over the last week. A bunch of pictures printed on canvas have shown up on the walls around the building. The pictures come from employee submissions to a Dublin site photography contest. The art in Redmond is pretty spectacular, but knowing these images all came from co-workers makes me smile a bit inside.

Before we get to everyone else’s pictures, below are a few I snapped a week or so ago of the sunrise with some amazing colours. I took these pictures outside on the fourth-floor terrace. They represent the view I had looking left from my desk at work without the window adding reflection.

Looks like my camera was set to dramatic warm before taking the pictures of the pictures so all they look a little dramatic and warm, but you still get the idea. Below are a sampling of some of the photo contest winners on the walls where I work.

Another bit of art I enjoy is a large poster on the wall that’s been here since we moved in.
