Where in the World (174)

The twisted city from last week produced quite an artistic picture. One reader suggested it would make a great piece of jewellery. I have to agree with him it produced a rather elegant and modern design.

It also had a few people scratching their heads wondering what it was and which city it resided in. The building depicted has a fairly recognisable outline particularly from the viewpoint of the photographer but is rarely seen in these colours. These are produced by projection onto the white tiles of the roofs of the building. Most recently the French flag was projected onto the surface to show solidarity with the people of Paris after the terrorist attacks in the latter part of 2015. The building these designs were projected on is a well known opera house in the city of Sydney.

Only three readers identified the city correctly as Sydney and some of the regulars are missing so I assume it was a little more challenging than I first thought. Congratulations to  Davide (@travelling_dave), Simon (@similtiades) and Jackie (@JackiesJourneys). My thanks to all who took part as well.

This week is another well known building disguised a little by the presence of cherry tree in bloom. Identify the building and you are likely to get the city. Do remember it is the city that is to be identified not the building.
