Kumar & Shanti’s Housewarming, 24 Feb 08

Here are some photos taken during a traditional Indian housewarming ceremony in Bukit Rimau, Shah Alam. The house was really beautiful, organic and contemporary looking.

A housewarming ceremony is usually performed on the occasion of one’s first entry into a new house. Once the house is ready, the family moves in on an auspicious day. A priest is called to bless the house, fresh cow’s milk is then boiled till it overflows to symbolise prosperity in the household. Cows or calves are also escorted into the house to further bless the house.

All the shots here were taken using a Sony DSC-H9 camera. My most favourite feature of this camera is the 3″ tilting LCD which is totally awesome.

I hope you enjoy the shots…sometimes you don’t need a huge DSLR camera with various lenses to get the shot that you need. I guess the person behind the camera is as important as the camera …don’t you think?

The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it
