Celebrating Life 2009
This photograph was taken on a misty morning
on the bank of river Summeshori in Birshiri,
Netrokona. The photographer and his friend found
themselves standing on the bank of the river, trying
to figure out the best way of crossing it: wade through
knee-high water like most, or paya boatman to
ferry them across. It was there that they saw the lady
doing her laundry on the grounded boat.
