It was the very moment you could not miss,the girl’s face and her emotion caught my eyes.God bless all survivors.


Mr. Bauhaus Wang,

Thank you very much for this exceptional picture.

From all pictures seen from Sichuan earth quake diaster area, your picture caught my attention the most. Because of this focus contrast and the single tear drop, your picture brought out the pain and sadness she had sufferred thru and yet she held back and kept all these sadness inside her.

Can you provide more information about this?
When, where, how you took this picture. Are there anyway we can contact her?

B. regards,

Tony Cheung
