40,000 hits on one day at my Xanga blog!

I posted this entry about a wedding in Sichuan when the earthquake hits. The church came tumbling down. Since then, it was picked up on the web and a lot of other blogs and what have you, posted this entry linking it to my blog. In one day, I’ve had over 40,000 hits from all over the world.

Come to think of it, it was most likely not on real the wedding day. In China, it’s fashionable to have a photo session usually a few days before the wedding where the studio would get a few couples together and go out together in a van to several locations for outdoor portraits.


Can you imagine what it was like to have been photographing a wedding in Sichuan, China when 7.9
earthquake hit and shakes for three minutes with the entire church crashing down? It was a good thing they weren’t doing the family formals at the altar at the time. (photos courtesy of Dragon Photo, ND Daily and Sohu.com)











From what understand, the thirty-three people miraculously survived it. See the whole story here. It’s in Chinese.


…and let’s not forget about the victims of the cyclone in Burma too. Burma was one of my favorite countries in my travels.

Please give to a charity of your choice to aid the victims of the earthquake of Sichuan, China and the cyclone of Burma.
