These photos were taken by a driver on a countryside road in Qingshui town, Yunyang county, Chongqing City on March 26, 2009. The driver who took the photographs actually already passed the scene. Being touched deep in his heart, he decided to turn back to the location. He was not disturbed at all. Later he posted the photos to a Chinese BBS. The story in Chinese is here.

His name is Zhang Hao (张豪). When he was one year old, his father left out of town to find work. His parents divorced when he was seven and he had to live with his grand parents. When he saw the photos, his eye poured out of tears. He told the journalist that it was brighter on the roadside than home and he always came here to finish homework unless it was raining. Now, his handicapped grandfather is 70 years old.
