Finding Elliot From Mr.Robot
The other day I talked about the importance of props or objects around a target. But is that a viable option all the time? Let’s see!
Step 1: The image looks pretty easy right? Why? Because I got the golden nugget in the background — Irish Pub Bar & Restaurant. With the same hope, I directly entered the query to http://maps.google.com. And it gave me bunch of results.
Step 2: Going through all the pin points and walking through all the streets was not an option. So I took the note of the blurred part in the image. And it read something like — Pigs ’N’ Whistle Irish Pub.
Step 3: So I added the keywords and boom! My results got filtered and was prompted with two results. One result was looking good. At this point, I thought it was a cake walk and walked through the streets.
Step 4: And voila, here I was! But the recent images looked bit different, so I tried with different timelines like 2014, 2016 etc.,
Step 5: Even though the shops looked similar, but that was not the right location. So with an intuition I walked for a bit here and there to find the exact shop. But it wasn’t anywhere. And also the boards were different, & there was no tree.
Step 6: A big road block. No where to go from here! But, there is always a way. Remember the importance of objects? I seemed to have missed some objects. The buildings in the background.
Step 7: I’m not a New Yorker or a native. So I just “Googled it”.These were those golden words.
Step 8: And this took to the end of the tunnel. And the following images looked similar.
Step 9: Now I just wanted to walk through the street. And being careful about directions helped a bit.
Step 10: Finally I arrived at the location. Apparently our beloved Elliot was here.
