Annual Qingming festival

A man arrives at a grave during the annual Qingming festival, or Tomb Sweeping Day, at a cemetery in Dagantangcun, 30km east of Beijing on Friday. During Qingming, Chinese traditionally tend the graves of their departed loved ones and often burn paper money, model houses, cars, mobile phones and other goods as offerings to honour them and keep them comfortable in the afterlife.    —AFP PHOTO
