Where in the World (316)

Most people used the warship HMS Belfast to identify the city. A decommissioned Royal Navy light cruiser she is now moored on the River Thames just upstream from Tower Bridge. Both the iconic bridge and HMS Belfast are often photographed together in the frame. This photograph, however, was taken from the bridge. The BT Tower on the skyline is also a helpful clue in identifying the city as London.

HMS Belfast, London

Congratulations to then to Bev (@BevSackville), Davide (@travelling_dave), Tim (@timofnewbury), Todd (@toddunctious) and Jackie (@JackiesJourneys) who all identified the city as London.

The distorted image for this week is another skyline but seen from a less usual viewpoint. However the clues are all still there even if a little more difficult to spot.

Try this quiz

How good is your knowledge of the cities of the world? Judging by the number of cities my readers identify correctly from distorted photographs some of you know them pretty well.

I have created a quiz of a different kind which I thought you might try. It’s a picture quiz but the photographs are not distorted.

Can you identify a city by a single statue?

Travel Quiz: Statues will take you only a few minutes. It starts with some easy ones and becomes more challenging towards the end. Give it a go and let me know what you think.

“Where in the World…” will continue to be posted each week as usual. Travel Quiz: Statues is the first in an occasional (very occasional) series of quizzes on travel themes.
