Using a Photo and Google as Forensic Tools, or Your Daily Dose of Happiness

By Deane Barker on November 13, 2009

How I tracked down a foregin couple on only the flimsiest of photographic evidence, and made their day. it was fun. : I loved this short story about how a guy’s wife took this picture of a man proposing to his girlfriend at the end of the New York marathon, and the guy used evidence in the picture and on the Net to track the couple down and give them the picture.

They are absolutely flaberghasted that I was able to find them and they were very happy to have the photo – it is the ONLY one they have of the actual proposal. And I now have an open invitation, any time I’m in London, for a pint at the local pub. .
