Can you guess where this was shot? I’ll reveal the answer shortly – or maybe I’ll wait to confirm it when the first person guesses correctly!
Solved in six hours by Betty Mackey, who correctly answered that I shot this at the Empire State Building, where each face of the landmark has a sign pointing to the appropriate compass reference. I assume this is so that tourists know which way they are facing.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 70-300mm lens. F8, 1/350 sec, ISO 200, focal length 300mm.
