Weekend Reflections

Household chores in a village on the Inle Lake in Myanmar.

Streets are made of water, transportation is done by small boats which are being used for other things as well, washing the dishes or clothes etc.

Local fisherman practice a very unique rowing style. Standing at the stern they wrap one leg around the oar. They adopted this style to have a better view over the floating plants and reeds.

Women row in the traditional style, using their hands to hold the oar.

  1. this is beautiful. Reflects indeed a different way of life. :)

  2. Your photos beautifully show that despite the poverty and simplistic lifestyle, there is beauty and an atmosphere of serenity.
    P.S. I'm a great fan of an uncomplicated lifestyle.

  3. These photos make me yearn for our return to Inle Lake! I so agree with Elizabeth's comment about the uncomplicated lifestyle...the treasure of Myanmar...for now...

  4. Wish I could see this place in person! But your photos make me feel like I'm seeing it for real.
