Tevzeme un Briviba

This is the monument to "Fatherland and Freedom" (Tevzeme, Briviba, respectively) at the center of Freedom Boulevard in Latvia. Most people let the fatherland side of the equation slide, and just call it the "Freedom Monument." It's more or less the symbol of Latvia, the same way the Statue of Liberty is a symbol of the U.S. As such, it represents the very lowest of low-hanging fruit for photography in Latvia. We're hoping the staff photographer gets it out of his system early.
