Hi all, Belita here. First congratulations to Heidi on a fantastic header shot. Mitch asked if I would host this week's challenge and I gladly accepted. My choice of theme is 'Letters and/or Numbers'. So here are the shots I selected to get you started.
Top of the triumphal arch-like (Lisbon downtown), built to commemorate the city's reconstruction after the 1755 earthquake.
Glory stands some feet high and holds laurels over Valor and Genius. The inscription reads: VIRTUTIBUS MAIORUM UT SIT OMNIBUS DOCUMENTO. P.P.D." It may mean "To the virtues of the greater ones (i.e. our ancestors) who taught us everything." P.P.D. is a standard abbreviation for Pecuinia Posuit Dedicavit, or "paid for at public expense."
