The Rex Cinema and Bar was a private members bar located in Rupert Street, Soho.

It took it's name from the historical UK cinema group The Rex, which began in the early 1900's.

A funeral is a ceremony for celebrating, respecting, sanctifying, or remembering the life of a person who has died. Funerary customs comprise the complex of beliefs and practices used by a culture to remember the dead, from interment itself, to various monuments, prayers, and rituals undertaken in their honor. Customs vary widely between cultures, and between religious affiliations within cultures. The word funeral comes from the Latin "funus", which had a variety of meanings, including the corpse and the funerary rites themselves. Funerary art is art produced in connection with burials, including many kinds of tombs, and objects specially made for burial with a corpse. 

This particular ceremony took place in Latgalia (Latvia), at small villages cemetery, in Šoldri. This was the year 2009 or 2010.

Agnese un meitenes, varētu būt 2007 gads. 

 Fotogrāfija ir lielisks atmiņu, sajūtu konservants, man jāsaka. Cilvēki, kas tavā dzīvē reiz ieņēma tik svarīgas vietas, pazūd no tās, atstājot aiz sevis telpu citiem, ne mazāk svarīgiem. Fotogrāfijas paliek, bildēs viss arvien ir tāpat kā toreiz, vienmēr paliks droši vien. 2001. gads, Jūrmala.
