The World of Lily Wong! Photo of LIly Wang bioinformatics student at Xiamen University

This lovely young lady is not only an amateur photographer but also a grad student in bioinformatics at Xiamen University! I met Lily during a trip to Jiangxi Province's Sanqing Mtn. with photographer Zhu Qingfu and Yayu (Chief Editor of Xiamen Daily's "Common Talk").

Lily has kindly allowed me to use some of her photos of Gulangyu Islet's amazingly diverse international architecture. I've divided the photos into several sections.

About Lily Wang

"Hi guys, this is mountain Lily. I’m a graduate student in Xiamen University and major in bioinformatics, a branch subject of biology. After getting the master’s degree, I plan to go to the United States to pursue my PhD. I know that this will not be easy but I will strive to make it true.

My hometown is Lanzhou City in Gansu Province. My grandfather was a professor in Chinese and Tibet language and my grandmother was a librarian in a University’s library. They passed away several years ago. My grandfather is the whole family’s pride because he was famous in the field that he studied. Gulangyu window photographs by Lily WangHe used to be Chinese major and learnt Tibet language all by himself. He devoted all his life to the research of Tibetan culture and translated most parts of the famous Tibet epic-----the King of Gesaer, which is the longest epic all over the world. My parents are ordinary works. They taught me to be independent and optimistic. I really appreciate what they do for me.

My father passed away one year ago. I felt rather sad about father’s leaving. My current interest in photography was ignited by father. When I entered university, father sent his precious camera to me as a gift,Gulangyu column Photographs by Lily Wang in the hope of that I could learn photography. However, I did not pay attention to father’s expectation and seldom used that camera. Things changed when I visited Beijing, where I took many souvenir photos, as well as some photos of landscapes. After the film was developed, I was shocked by my work. How could I take such beautiful photos? My classmate said they were just like postcards. A sense of fulfillment pushed me into a great interest in photography. I showed those photos to father. He also praised me. Unfortunately, these were the first and last works that my father saw. Last July, Father and Mum bought me a new digital camera and I from then on Lily Wang's photo of Gulangyu ceiling decorationsphotography was my life, but I lost my dear Father only two months later. During the year since then I’ve been taking photos and have made great progress. I have many photos, which I share on a website, and I believe that my Father is somewhere and can see all that I’m doing.
