Portrait of a little girl growing up: Father and Daughter pose at the same spot every year since 1980

When a young Chinese father was photographed on holiday with his one-year-old daughter he had no idea he`d begun an enduring family tradition.

Hua Yunqing and his daughter Huahua were shot by a lake in Zhenjiang, Jiangsu, when she was just one in 1980

This photo of Hua and Huahua taken in 1980 when she was just one-year-old was the very first in Hua`s long collection
