Here is Thanoo's house, with the mangroves showing behind on the left. The brown boat under the house is his, and the bright orange boat belongs to a neighbour Ying, who is visiting. Everyone helps one another here and shares in some good times with food and sometimes a little beer at night. From the estuary comes a wide variety of fish, clams, and crabs.
There are two large cisterns in the back for storing water from the roof, as well as two small solar panels. Some have generators as well. The head office, which is a new addition, can be seen behind and on the right!

Great shot, great daily life scene, great "blending" of nature and architecture! Great "lead in" line, great perspective, excellent framing and composition! Flawless light management, beautiful colours!

Yes, it is simple life at the klong with all the mosquitoes. Very nice warm color hues and high sharpness. Good to see that the mangrove forest still looks intact. Good photo job. Thanks for your critique of my sunset at the Giant Albukhari. No I did not use a tripod, because the shot was not planned at all.
