Where in the World (178)
Last week’s twisted photograph appeared to be “a challenge too far” as no one identified the city correctly or incorrectly. Even the regular winners were admitting defeat on this one. So, Where in the World is the distorted photograph number 177 taken?
The building is, as I mentioned last week, in a city known for its 18th and 19th century architecture. This 21st century building is known as the Baltic Pearl for fairly obvious reasons and is part of the Baltic Pearl Plaza, commercial centre built as part of a huge residential project in the Russian city of St Petersburg.
Okay, so it was a bit obscure but the “pearl” is iconic if only recently so and it distorted easily to form a pleasing image. The next one will be easier… I promise.
This week’s distorted photograph is of a city skyline dominated by an iconic and historic building. This is seen from a much more recent but no less iconic structure. An easier place to identify and I have given a couple of clues… definitely easier than the last one.
