Where in the World (193)

Last week’s twisted photograph proved quite a challenge. For some it was the presence of a river cruiser (green lights) but the main reason for the difficulty is that it was of a skyline that did not exist just a few years ago so was not instantly recognisable. Perhaps that is the reason why it was identified as Hamburg, its twinned city, Birmingham, Bratislava and Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Tim (@timofnewbury) has a habit of identifying bridges and last week was no exception. He identified the bridge as Pont Raymond Barre and the city as Lyon, France.

My thanks to @ama_v for giving me permission to use the photograph (below) from her Instagram stream.

Congratulations then to the only reader to correctly identify the city, Tim (@timofnewbury). There aren’t many twisted photographs that have him foxed.

This week features another skyline that has dramatically changed within the last decade. There is at least one major clue to the identity of the city. Hopefully this week will present less of a challenge. Thank you to all those who had a go last week.
