Where in the World (83)
Last week’s distorted city produced a rather artistic looking “planet” but was not that easy to identify. Most people recognised that there was a bridge in the photograph but which one proved slightly more difficult. It was not originally intended for there to be a bridge here. Apparently an advertising consultant was brought in to raise the profile of a newly regenerated riverfront and dockland neighbourhood. His study showed that the money for advertising would be better spent on a bridge to provide better access. As a result the Puente de la Mujer footbridge on the Puerto Medero waterfront of Buenos Aires was built.
There is a bridge with a similar design that has appeared in these posts in the Rotterdam “planet”. Glasgow was another city that others opted for. Our winners, Tim (@timofnewbury) and Atul (@pixodentist), were undoubtedly helped by the fact that they were able to identify the bridge. Congratulations to you both.
This week’s distorted photograph depicts a city skyline with a very distinctive building in the foreground. Both should help with the identification of the city.
Can you identify this week’s city? Although the same names often appear among the winners the page analytics indicate that there are far more readers apparently having a go at identifying each week’s city than those who send in their answer. If you think you know what city it is then do have a go and let’s see a few new names on the winners list.
