Oil Lamp

Indian Ornate Oil Lamp
Oil Lamp
Subject: Oil Lamp

Story behind the shot: Lighting up an oil lamp in front of the images of deities is a widely followed practice of Hindus [On a religious context]. It is believed that the darkness of the soul is chased by the light which has been lit up for God. Usually, single wick lamps are lit in houses whereas five wick lamps are lit in temples and special occasions.  

What made me capture the image: The divine nature of the subject is the main reason that made me capture this image.
