Photographer's Note

This is a houseboat at Dal Lake in the city of Srinagar. Srinagar is seen as a house of garden, scented with fresh fruits and luxuriant blossoms and the golden leaves of the Chinar Tree. A houseboat is a big boat usually designed to be used as a home. In Srinagar at the Dal Lake houseboats are primarily used as "homestays" for the tourists. They have very costly rooms for guests as well as moderately priced rooms.
The man here is tying his small boat, and may be doing some duty at the afternoon time. Lot of things need to be done regularly to maintain these houseboats. Some of the Dal Lake houseboats are like the Floating houses on the Amazon, Iquitos, Peru and some of them resemble like the Washington's Seattle-Lake Union Houseboats. The valley of Srinagar looks divinely beautiful as you discern these houseboats placed in the moorland of the Dal lake!
