The creature, half fish and half lion, which looms large in the distorted photograph from last week places the city firmly in Asia and may well be the key to identifying the city. Apart from the Merlion the skyline is also a big factor in identification of the city. The large dome like structure is often referred to as “the armadillo” is one of the most recognisable buildings on the waterfront of Singapore.
Four people were able to identify the city as Singapore; coincidently the same four who identified the city last week as Sofia. Congratulations to Andrew (@SplashDSM), Atul (@pixodentist), Tim (@timofnewbury) and Richard (@RField75).
The distorted cityscape for this week is a view of the city often seen in photographs in guidebooks and brochures as it illustrates a particular characteristic of the city.
