Beijing Besieged by Garbage

The Fringes of Beijing B06

This is the first photograph taken of this baby. The adults put him in this basin to represent a traditional Chinese cornucopia. After all children are our greatest treasures. (In the Chinese myth a poor family of farmers came upon a magical basin where if one grain of rice was put in it, the basin would produce 100 grains in return.)
这是这个小孩出生后的第一张照片。在拍摄时大人把他放在盆子里,也是取“聚宝盆”之意。的 确,孩子才是我们真正的财富。
