Where in the World (323)

Dominated by high-rise buildings the distorted photograph could have presented quite a challenge if they were the sole focus of efforts to identify the city. As those readers who regularly follow “Where in the World…” know it is often the smaller details that can reveal the identity of the city. In this case, the bridge featured in the photograph is probably the clue that helped the most. It is the Erasmus Bridge (or Erasmusbrug) over the River Maas in Rotterdam.

Erasmus Bridge (Erasmusbrug), Rotterdam

Judging by the number of answers preceded by “I think…” or “I’m not sure…” this week was slightly more challenging than some of the recent distorted cities. Congratulations to those who rose to the challenge and identified the city correctly as Rotterdam: Tim (@timofnewbury), Atul (@pixodentist), Jackie (@JackiesJourneys), Dave (@travelling_dave) and Todd (@toddunctious).

There is very little to go on in this week’s distorted image. However the distinctive motif that is part of the structure is a great clue as it is; a) fairly unique and, b) it identifies the general area of the world in which the city is located. This week may involve a little bit of Google researching to confirm the identity of the city. Good luck.
