The distorted photograph last week defeated many people including some of the regulars to this page. It was not an easy city to identify with all the pylons and wires looking like some intergalactic spiders web. Tim (@timofnewbury) who regularly identifies the cities in “Where in the World…” seems to have a knack of identifying the bridges in distorted photographs and thereby identifying the city. However for those of us who cannot recognise the bridge or indeed see that it is a bridge, there is a building that is identifiable.
The bridge is actually two bridges. The Hungerford Bridge is much older and carries the railway across the river. The more modern bridge is the Golden Jubilee Bridge, a footbridge that replaces the old footbridge. The building is Charing Cross Station. That means we are looking across the Thames from the South Bank and the city is London.
It was a good deal more challenging this week but four people were successful in identifying the city as London: Tim (@timofnewbury), Andrew (@SplashDSM), Richard (@RField75) and Davide (@travelling_dave). Congratulations to you all.
I could not decide between two distorted photographs for Where in the World (111), I knew Tim would certainly enjoy the challenge of identifying the bridge in one of them where as the other is a little less challenging and after this weeks toughie I thought something a little easier would be appreciated. So I decided to post two – one for Tim and anyone else who wants a challenge – and the second as part of the ongoing “Where in the World…” challenge.
Firstly the distorted photograph for Where in the World (111). It is a cityscape with several identifying features so should present less of a challenge than last week.
As usual you can leave your answer in the comments below or on my Twitter feed (@lethers) with the hashtag #WITW111. If we mutually follow each other on Twitter then you could send me a direct message with your answer. Please do not forget the hashtag #WITW111 as it makes finding the answers in a continually changing Twitter feed so much easier; you and your answer are more likely to be found.
You can also leave your answer under the post referring to this on the Travel Unpacked Facebook page (please like the page while you are there). Alternatively you can also click the contact tab above and send me an e-mail with the answer. Good luck.
Where is this bridge?
As mentioned above here is another distorted photograph of a bridge for Tim and others who like a bit more of a challenge. As the name suggests it is a photograph, distorted like the cities that appear on this page every week, of a bridge. The challenge is to identify the bridge and the city/country it is in; no easy task with this one.
If you can identify the bridge then leave your answers in the same way as above but with the hashtag #WITB01. The answer will be posted after 10:00pm [GMT] on Wednesday 29th. If it proves popular I will continue the series on an occasional basis along with the “Where in the World…” series
