Photographer's Note

This is one of the jetties at the Kampung Patau-Patau water village on Labuan Island. The residents are mainly Brunei Malay.

The jetties are connected by a maze of walkways to the wooden houses which are built on stilts over the water. Almost every house has its own boat. The houses can be quite large and they all have a cool verandah in front. The villages are made up of large communities with shops, mosques and other facilities.

In the distance and within Labuan harbour several red oil rig service vessels can be seen. These vessels are vital to the work carried out on the many offshore oil and gas rigs in the area.
