Ye Chaoqun (L), a fifth-generation lighthouse keeper, receives fresh vegetables from his father, Ye Jinghu, who brings daily necessities, on Qiliyu Island in Ningbo, east China's Zhejiang Province on May 20, 2020. Five generations of one family from Ningbo, east China's Zhejiang Province, have served as lighthouse keepers, adopting one family motto that is "keep the light on when you are alive" resolutely. In 1883, Ye Lairong, first lighthouse keeper of the family, started working on Baijie Island. After that, his descendants inherited and devoted themselves to the work. Now, 32-year-old Ye Chaoqun, the family's fifth generation of lighthouse keeper, has been working on Qiliyu Island for seven years and still bears the family motto in mind. (Xinhua/Weng Xinyang)
