Where in the World (103)
By coincidence last week I was invited to visit the city where the distorted photograph was taken. I strolled along the water’s edge where the two buildings that are prominent in the photograph are. You can read about that adventure here. The red brick building was the headquarters of the Bute Dock Company and its clock tower was known as “Baby Big Ben”. It is known as the Pierhead Building. The golden roofed structure is the Wales Millennium Centre and both are the waterfront of Cardiff Bay, which of course identifies the city.
It was not as easy to identify as last week’s photograph. Cities beginning with the letter “H” seemed to be popular guesses with Hamburg and Helsinki being the most common among the incorrect answers. Four people correctly identified the city as Cardiff. Congratulations to Atul (@pixodentist), Tim (@timofnewbury) and Andrew (@SplashDSM).
This week’s distorted city looks like it is out of this world but it is very definitely not from the some distant universe. It is an iconic landmark from one of Earth’s cities.
