Pillars Sustaining Houses

Pillars sustaining floors of dwellings

Many pillars were seen under the floors of dwellings

Shot at a small fishing village in Dalah, Myanmar.

Walking the riverside, many pillars were seen ahead of me. The houses in this village were built on the slope along the small river. These houses were sustained by these pillars. And the floors of houses were positioned horizontally to the ground by these thin pillars. Watching them from the water level, the houses seemed to be high-floored.

This structure was used not only to sustain floors but also to hang something. Some laundries were hung in a part of the structure. And I could see also fishnets there. At any rate, I couldn't see any sewage pipes among the pillars. Although this village had access to power, it seemed not to have piped water. In spite of the situation, some dwellers had their own smartphone.
