Where in the World (333)

Even if you were unable to instantly recognise the street extending upward from the centre of the distorted photograph there were other clues in the image. It is possible to make out an obelisk in the middle of the road and beyond it an extensive pale brown building. These are the Place de la Concorde and the Louvre. In the bottom right quadrant of the distorted image are the two rectangular towers of Notre-Dame Cathedral. The tree-line street is the Camps-Elysees seen from the Arc de Triomphe which means the city is Paris.

Champs-Elysees, Paris

Congratulations to Jackie (@jackiesjourneys), Tim (@timofnewbury), Dave (@travelling_dave) and Beverley (@bevsackville) who all identified the city correctly as Paris.

The distorted photograph this week is of a different view than that usually seen of the city to be identified so may require a little research. Good luck.
