Where in the World (231)

Where 940MkUpWhen posting a distorted city photograph to be identified I check to see whether there are any giveaway clues in writing on the photograph and usually blur them out or pixelate them. After all I can’t make it too easy.

Last week I failed to spot that the name of the city was written twice on the building. At which point I expected a deluge of correct answers.

After a day or two I began to feel a little better with only one correct answer; they had spotted the city name on the building. In addition there were a couple of DMs in my Twitter feed telling me this was the most difficult photo yet. It seemed I was not the only one to have missed the written clue.

Granted, the word was not that clear but zooming in it was just possible to make it out. I also discovered the word was written twice on the building.

I have reproduced an enlarged section of the photograph for those wanting to see exactly where it was.

As the writing on the building’s facade says the city is Dresden.

Dresden, Germany
Dresden, Germany

Congratulations this week to to Jackie (@JackiesJourneys) who spotted the word Dresden and Tim (@timofnewbury) who meticulously used Google’s Image Search to track down the identity of the building and hence the city.

This week the distorted photography shows a lot more of the city to be identified than the photograph from last week.
