Where in the World (285)
The key to identifying last week’s distorted city is to identify the obelisk among the spring blossom. While there are a number of cities with memorials similar to this one few of them are surrounded by cherry blossom en masse. The structure is the Washington Memorial which coincidentally was dedicated on this day (February 21) in 1885 and can be found in the United States of America’s capital, Washington DC.
Congratulations to Jackie (@JackiesJourneys), Tim (@timofnewbury), Bev (@bevsackville), Davide (@travelling_dave) and David & Veronica (@emptynester) and Atul (@pixodentist) who all identified the city as Washington DC.
This week the distorted photograph is of another monument. However, it is not the name of the monument that is required but the city where it is located. Obviously, the monument will need to be identified as part of the process of identifying the city.
