Most photographed place

Post by Paul Ringstrom »

Photos have always told stories, but in today's world of cell phone cameras and social media, that story is relayed as data to companies who monitor everything we do. Geotagged data was culled by Sightsmap using a Google-based image sharing software, and can now show us the most photographed places in the world, right down to the landmark. The Winner? The Guggenheim in New York.
Owner of the G. Curtis Yelland House (1910), by Wm. Drummond

I'm surprised. I would have thought the Statue of Liberty or Big Ben/Houses of Parliament or something international like that.

Now that I think of it, you can only shoot the Guggenheim from a couple spots, but you can photograph those other attractions from thousands of angles. In other words, that survey probably measures precise spots, not "most photographed" attractions.

I would have assumed the Eiffel Tower. In LA, it would be Grauman's Chinese Theater.

Those are good ones - especially the Eiffel Tower.

The Cinderella Castle at Disney (pick which park) was my first guess.

The park would be the Magic Kingdom at Disney World.

The castle at Disneyland is Sleeping Beauty Castle.

You used the correct form without a possessive "s." It is indeed "Cinderella Castle," not "Cinderella's Castle."

Isn't the Guggenheim international?
