Photographer’s remarks

U Bein Bridge was built around 1850 and at 1,2 km in length, is considered to be the oldest and longest teakwood bridge in the world. The bridge is built from wood reclaimed from a former royal palace. Although teak is very durable, parts of the bridge are beginning to decay. While walking along the bridge late one day, I noticed several boys standing on stilts or a small platform about 20 metres out in the water away from the bridge. I am not sure if they were fishing or tending a fish trap.
