Where in the World (181)
Last week’s distorted photograph was did not bear any resemblance to the usual city skyline published in “Where in the World…” However, it seems it was easily recognisable as the Sólfar or Sun Voyager sculpture. Sited by the sea it was created by the sculptor Jón Gunnar Árnason to mark the 200th anniversary of the city of Reykjavik.
Congratulations to all those who recognised the sculpture and were able to identify the city as Reykjavik. They were Davide (@travelling_dave), Atul (@pixodentist), Simon (@similtiades), Jackie (@JackiesJourneys), Someone at Italian Tourist Board (@ItalianTouristB), Kat (@Katrinnas) and Tim (@timofnewbury).
This week’s distorted photograph should probably be titled “Where in the World would you find this?” Just as last week’s was an iconic detail of the city of Reykjavik so this week’s twisted photograph is also an iconic detail of the city in which it is located. It is the city that needs to be identified not the structure. Good luck.
