Photographer's Note

I was lucky enough to capture a picture of this girl after she repeatedly shouted HELLO! at me from 100m away as I was approaching the sand dunes on the outskirts of Dunhuang. No matter how any times I shouted HELLO! back to her, she shouted it again! Perhaps her parents told her this was a good time to put into use those strange foreign words she had been learning at school, but until now had never quite realised what they were for!

Once I finally approached her and she saw I had a camera, she wanted her photo taken and to look at her picture on the LCD screen. I only took 2, clearly they pleased her and she ran away up the dune after her family.

I've always resisted posting this photo because in all honesty I made a mess of taking it, can see many flaws with it, and never found a way of cropping it which I liked. That said, the reason I've finally decided to post it is because everyone I've ever showed it to really liked it and hence I guess there must be something good about it! Her smile is infectious I have to admit.

Thanks for looking guys! :)
