Hello dear RB-friends,

Here I show you a picture from the “floating village” Kompong Phluk near the Tonle Sap Lake in Cambodia.
This floating village is so photogenic, so picturesque, so sweet, so kind….

At the same time life is so hard here.
Everything that people have to do every day, that happens on the water, like this woman does…

She has no washer, no centrifuge and no tumble dryer, just her hands, a small boat and the river, in wich much more things happen…..

Kind regards from Zeeland, Netherlands,

    The colors and composition in this image are so lovely. We (I am in the United States) forget too easily how difficult life can be for others in different cultures. I am drawn though to the beauty in the people you photographed – her head is turned away from the camera yet I think she is smiling, maybe at the little boy on the left who is smiling. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful image.
