The distorted city photograph last week was more challenging than usual. Pictures of the city do not grace the pages of guide books, brochures or Internet holiday sites very often as it’s a bit off the tourist trail for most people. The two sets of “chopsticks” were the clue to identifying the city but even then it was still a challenge. The “chopstick” like structures are actually the pillars of a rather graceful looking suspension bridge. There are several cities graced by suspension bridges – Rotterdam, San Fransisco and Buenos Aires are just three of them – but this one is in the Russian city of Vladivostock. Like I said a bit off the tourist trail.
Only two people managed the challenging task of identifying the city. That’s two more than I expected. Congratulations to both of our regulars, Tim (@timofnewbury) an Atul (@pixodentist) for recognising Vladivostock. Thank you too to all those who continue to support the “Where in the World…”, the travel quiz with a twist.
This week’s twisted photograph is a typical skyline from the city to identify as there is no iconic building or structure. It’s been around for 3000 years and during much of that time foreigners have been coming to the city often with hostile intent.
