Where in the World (156)

It hardly seems possible but “Where in the World…” has been going for three years as of this week. There are still readers who regularly have a shot at identifying the twisted photographs and are brave enough to post their answer. I also know that there are others who take a look but do not post their answers for one reason or another.

imageLooking back to the first few months I notice that there are some people who have been following the weekly “Where in the World…” posts since the first month or two. Richard, Atul and Tim have popped up among the contestants almost every week. Others have discovered the distorted cities later on and now there is a core of regular visitors to the puzzle. Thank you for your continued support.

This week, to mark the occasion, I am offering a small prize. The Wenger Status Messenger Bag. This bag will fit most tablets and laptops upto a 13 inch screen. In addition there are plenty of other pockets for organising pens, mobile phone, notebook (the kind you write in with a pen and ink) ad various other paraphanalia.

It is hard wearing and, importantly, has a scratch proof lining for those who don’t have one of those fancy screen covers that wake up their tablets when removed. All in all a smart, wearing piece of kit that I have found very useful. You have to be in it to win it so have a go at this week’s “Where in the World…” even if you are not sure.

Last week’s distorted city photograph featured what appears to be a large fountain. This large jet of water, known locally simple as Jet d’Eau, is the iconic feature of the city where you find it. Without this feature it would be hard to identify the city even if the photograph was not twisted. The Jet d’Eau rises from a lake that has several names one of which it shares with the city. The city is Geneva, Switzerland.

This week there were more correct answers than last week. Congratulations to Atul (@pixodentist), Tim (@timofnewbury) Obadiah (@ObadiahPoundage), Davide (@travellin_dave) and Richard (@RField75)

This week the distorted photograph is of a view of a well known structure in the city to be identified. It is often featured on postcards, tourist brochures and in guide books. Which city is it?


As usual you can leave your answer in the comments below or on my Twitter feed (@lethers) with the hashtag #WITW156. If you are on Twitter then you can Direct Message me with the answer and no one will see what you have put. Alternatively email me with the answer using the contact page – see tab on menu bar above.

All correct answers received by 10:00pm [BST] on Wednesday 9th September 2015 will be entered into a draw. The winner will be drawn after that time and their name published. Only the winner will be contacted for their address to send the prize to. Unfortunately this competition is not open to readers who do NOT have a UK postal address. Good luck

Please do not forget the hashtag #WITW156 as it makes finding the answers in a continually changing Twitter feed so much easier; you and your answer is more likely to be found.
