a huge chance to capture them in every stage of their life...

Chengdu, December 28th 2011
When I returned to my hostel, the staff asked me, "How was it? Did you get to see the pandas?"
"Oh yes, I did!" I answered excitedly. "The pandas were outside the whole day long. Until I left at about four, the pandas were still outside."
"Oh really? You are very lucky then!"
Yes, I was lucky indeed. I didn't just meet pandas with an 'S'. I got a huge chance to capture them in every stage of their life: from childhood to adulthood. Here there are!!
What a bundle of joy! Don't you think so?
"Ooopsss! Gotta be more careful next time..."
"Here... let me tell you a secret..."
"How shall I tell her that I love her? Hmmm..."
"Ooops! I have fallen in love!"
"What did you say? You said you love me??"
"Someone please rescue me!!"
Sober, less cute. That spells adult.
One thing is sure not to change: The fondness of bamboo.
This panda walked very closed to me, sat in front of me for a few seconds, pointed its eye to my lens, made a pose, and then continued to walk away. There was nobody else beside me at that time. Panda clearly stopped just to make a pose for me! 谢谢熊猫！
I had planned that I would stay until the pandas retrieve to their pens. On the contrary, many times I said to myself, "Okay, it's time to go back to the hostel." and at that many times I would see one two visitor standing by the fence either cheering or photographing. There were pandas! What a deep contrary to my experience 15 months ago! Eventually, I had to leave the pandas, because I had a night train to Wuhan to catch.
