Woman Praying at Shrine to Brahma

This woman is paying respects in Erewan square surrounded by skyscrapers in downtown Bangkok, Thailand. Interestingly, though most Thais are
Buddhist, this shrine is to the Hindu god Brahma. The woman is most likely Buddhist, but like most Thais, finds it no contradiction to pay respects to or ask favors of local spirits.
