PhotoHunt - Metal

PhotoHunt

Burn in them!
These metal bin incinerators are used by the Chinese in burning paper offerings during prayers. To avoid particles from flying all over the place and polluting the air.

At least Singapore has the no open burning law that made the environment less polluted. In Malaysia, you tend to get people burning by the road, thus you get ashes flying inside the house during these periods. I hope more people are considerate in this matter soon. Thanks for sharing. :)

SarahHub said...

I love the colors in this photo!

And I love the tradition!

Snap2Days said...

I've never heard of those. That sound like a good tradition and the shot is great.

Liz said...

They look too clean to be in use! Great idea.

Carver said...

Great shot. Happy weekend.

ancient one said...

Such interesting things you tell us about your pictures. My husband is outside burning leaves as I type. I cannot get him to stop.

Loved your photo!

Leslie said...

Well, I really liked seeing that photo and reading that! Your blog is the one I come to first for PhotoHunt days. :)

I'd not seen these before. Superb photo!

julie said...

I am not sure if there are like that here because I still see people burning those paper offerings in open air during ceremonies. Some while a procession/parade is ongoing.

Have a great weekend Elaine :)

Love the vibrant color of red! Happy hunting

gen/entry said...

Oh that is cool metal and colorful. Happy hunting!

Fishman said...

Nice pic. They must be new as they still look shiny and without any burn marks.

jmb said...

Well at least they are bright and shiny. A very colourful photo for this theme. Have a good weekend Napaboaniya.

ian said...

wow... that's a very intesting tidbit on how technology and culture are converging... are they new innovations? i wonder how the elders feel about them...

Corey~living and loving said...

I'm glad you explained what they were for. I would have never guessed.
nice photo. I love the angle.
Happy weekend!

tigerfish said...

Whalamak! I thought look like perfect drumset leh ;p

witsandnuts said...

That's a historical take. I love the colors! Happy weekend. =)

PastorMac's Ann said...

This is a great shot for metal - like the contrast between the shiny silver and the red.

cookie said...

great take. i've seen these gadgets being used by some of our chinese neighbors here. i was completely ignorant about the whole ceremony until a friend explained it to me.

my entry is here...METAL

Angela said...

Wow, I love those colors!

smarmoofus said...

Great idea. But I'm impressed by how shiny they are. Does someone polish them up on a regular basis, then?

I love the red bins. This is very neat.

AuTom said...

Nice take on the theme.

JyLnC said...

The pots look so pretty all lined up in a row. I really love the red and silver contrast.

Stop by and see mine if you have the time.

Those metal containers are so brightly attractive! Lovely shot!

June said...

Very interesting...glad they made them attractive!

mirage2g said...

That is definitely a good idea....love the colors too!

EastCoastLife said...

This is so neat. I presume it is at a temple. Some people just simply burn below their flats or outside their house.

I'm back! heehee...

Pat said...

What a great shot!!!!

Happy Weekend.

Great picture, Elaine! Very interesting post too...

YTSL said...

All very well with the attempt "to avoid particles from flying all over the place and polluting the air" but judging from the flying particles I've seen, I'm not sure that it's all that successful! ;(

Heart of Rachel said...

I find this tradition very interesting. Great shot.

Shinade said...

Wonderful shot. I am sorry I didn't make it sooner. I just had to reload 2 times to leave this comment.

I'm having issues with my satellite service.

But this is a fabulous shot as they always are.

I love to see your pictures!!:-)
