In the artist’s own words: "My friend Yuchen and I traveled around the world to take photos of stars, but Beijing-capital of China-is too prosperous to get a shot for its strong neon lights affection. We thus climbed to the top of the Mount. Xiang-a 500 meters above horizontal and over 20 kilometers away from the metropolitan-to try whether we can get a satisfactory star picture belongs to Beijing. Here Yuchen was observing stars with his telescope and can not stop his excitement, he even refused to talk to me for not disturbing his "best observation period." I stand by his side and took this shot to stop this amazingly beautiful moment and to celebrate our grand successful."
