Pic of the Week: School Boat by Mary Robertson

editorial image

THIS shot was taken at Tonli Sap Lake in Cambodia.


The locals here live in wooden stilted houses in the middle of the lake and so travel everywhere, including to school, by boat.
We were on the lake when the boat full of children started coming towards us.
The children were all laughing and playing about, except the little girl in the middle who was clearly in charge and taking her captain’s responsibilities very seriously. 
The happy smiling faces and the beautiful little girl encapsulated the whole area for me. 
Taken on an Olympus C-740 Ultra Zoom on automatic.
