Where in the World (291)

After two weeks in which identifying the distorted city proved challenging this week was much easier. There were two clues one of which I had missed and had it pointed out to me. Firstly the painting was far less distorted than the photograph and, therefore, it was easier to identify the building. It is Notre Dame. Secondly, and I had missed this, the plaque to the bottom right of the artist’s picture gives the name of the bridge as Pont de l’Archevéché. This is one of the bridges that span the Seine. Together these clues identify the city as Paris.


Congratulations this week to Simon (@similtiades), Atul (@pixodentist), Beverley (@bevsackville), Jackie (@JackiesJourneys), Tim (@timofnewbury) and Davide (@travelling_dave) who all identified the city correctly.

This week’s “Where in the World…” is of a less well-known view of a well known city. Seen from the water that is a feature of the city. It is not, however, Venice.
