Where in the World (80)
It’s hard to believe that Where in the World has been going for 80 weeks. That’s 80 posts and about 90 twisted photographs (some weeks featured more than one distorted city). It is becoming increasingly difficult to find a suitable city photograph to twist. Sometimes, as one regular visitor to the Where in the World pages pointed out, there are cities that have featured more than once. That’s the case with last week’s twisted photograph; it has actually featured three times.
The city was identified by more than one person as Bilbao – thinking the mishap pen building was the Guggenheim Museum – or Valencia. Neither is correct as the distorted building is the Sydney Opera House, which of course immediately identifies the city.
It was harder than usual because even in its undistorted format the building is not that easy to identify; it’s not the usual view of the Sydney Opera House.
Despite the higher than usual number of entries only two people correctly identified the city as Sydney. Congratulations to Tim (@timofnewbury), a regular among the winners, and someone from CrowMads (@crowleyfreedom) for the correct identification.
This week’s photograph, twisted of course, is of a city skyline but is not the classic view often associated with this city.
