The Importance of Being Ernest

The Importance of Being Ernest

Film expired since March 1980. I went to a cemetary and I noticed that the grave on the left has the Name, Date of birth and death of the deceased written on top as usual. However, on the bottom it has "NADA" written in caps. Nada means "nothing" in portuguese and I thought it was rather odd that someone would have that written on their grave. I had my Kodak Brownie Reflex Synchro with me at the time so I took a shot!

    Hmm... Maybe he wanted no epitaph written on his tomb.
