This is one of the oldest temple in Singapore. Located at Serangoon Road within easy access of the Farrer Park MRT Station, this beautiful Indian temple presents rich photo opportunities for the keen photographer.

So many good pictures in this set ! I love #6, 7, 8 and 11. I put 8 in my favorites because this is the kind of "perfect" shot that I would like to get close to. The light in the whole set is magical. I love the portraits, especially the one of the old lady (#22) and the man in the mirror (I guess it is a mirror ?). It is brilliant !

Wow! I see u got good light that day! Like ESP the rose series. Also like the bird series, the mirror reflection and the framing one. Great set!
