Photographer's Note

I try to get in one full day a month to just go out and shoot random shots.

While out a couple months ago. I found myself around China Town in Singapore. Coincidentally, there is a very large Hindu temple pretty much right in the middle of China Town. I've been by this temple often, but I've never seen this ceremony before. I watched with interest as this Priest (called a Purohit in Hindi) made his way around the vehicle with this platter of offerings and incense.
Apparently it is quite common in India to have new acquisitions like cars and houses blessed by God.

Thanks to Avishek for the cultural info.
