A kampong house by the sea - a reverie or dream

A simple kampong house by the sea - but what a beautiful life for young and old. I, too, have a dream, a kampong dream - of kampong houses on stilts - black, brown and beautiful. Was it yesterday that we ran across the wooden planking linking the kampong houses on stilts? Before sundown, we waited outside the houses to look out for the fishing boats returning with dozens of half-naked fishermen untangling their nets. It was in this setting that the photographer was able to capture images of little children running up and down the wooden planking or bridge, with reflections of the kampong houses on the glass-like sea and the returning boats in their pensive journeys buoyant across the calm waterways.
