Washing On The Edge Of The Water

Woman washing in Ayeyarwady river

The woman was just washing laundries with the river water

Shot in the city of Pyay, Myanmar.

The flow of the Ayeyarwady River was slow. And a woman was crouching on the edge of the water. She was just doing the laundry there. Perhaps, there were no water places to do washing clothes in her house. I saw many dwellings without running water in Pyay.

Although I didn't know whether the water was clean or not, she didn't care. She smiled faintly while she wrung the laundry dry out. Beside her, a battered birdcage was seen.
