Where in the World (269)

Where in the World (269)

The iconic structure in last week’s distorted image is rarely seen in the multi-coloured disguise depicted. During a festival of light, it was bathed in a glorious technicolour light show. This means that shape and other clues are the best means of identifying the city. Most people recognised the statue on the top of the structure (the bottom of the distorted image) and received confirmation by looking at the shape of the structure. Despite the disguise, the structure is the Brandenburg Gate which is in the city of Berlin.

Brandenburg Gate, Berlin

Congratulations to Davide, (@travelling_dave) Tim (@timofnewbury), Jackie (@JackiesJourneys), Beverley (@bevsackville) and Simon (@similtiades) who managed to uncover the disguise and identify the city as Berlin.


This week the distorted photograph is a city skyline which may not be immediately recognisable. The original, pre-distortion photograph is taken from what is probably the city’s most iconic building. However, the country in which it is located should be fairly easy to identify. That will, in turn, reduce the number of possibilities quite considerably.
