Just curious, do you know anything about these structures? Can anyone just "build onto" the existing floating village? Must be a very cool place to spend the summer.
Yeah, the houseboats were the subject. The reason the top part of the houseboats were also blurred out is because a tighter subject area gave a better effect in this case. I tried to widen the focused area, but the result wasn't as good.

I'd be lying if I told you I knew much about these. I think these were built along the docks in empty spaces. I think right now they are all taken up, and it's very expensive to own one of those. One of the boathouses (not in this particular pic) was supposedly in the movie Sleepless in Seattle (which I haven't seen).
