oops I forgot the foldername

I know it was half of London stairs + Angua┬┤s hint: I can't adam and eve it, you are not using your loaf we figured out it refers to Cockney rhyming slang: Stairs = Apple and pears
Since we only need a half:

We see a golden apple which was also given to Aphrodite by PARIS.

We see binary which converts to
187 77 152
33 110 180 242 201 49
33 110 180
242 201 49
205 200 63 in decimal. The numbers are RGB colour codes for: purple/pink, blue, yellow and a greenish yellow. Those colours are also used for the Paris Metro lines. The colours belong to the lines: 4, 2 and 1, 2, 1,9. Converted to letters: DUBAI
http://www.amgineriddles.com/lpinvas...ples/dubai.htm (http://www.amgineriddles.com/lpinvasion/apples/dubai.htm)
Dubai also has a Metro with a Red and Green line ( matches the clours for the numbers we see on the page)
We counted the station according to the colour/number we were given ( red 19= 19th station of the red line) took first letters and get:

Creator’s solve:
Half of London stairs, Cockney rhyming slang for stairs is apples and pears
www.amgineriddles.com/lpinvasion/apples/
The golden apple has an exif clue “judge”. The judgement of Paris – Aphrodite gave him a golden apple.

Binary converts to hex (as Eliza Dolittle would pronounce x in My Fair Lady), which converts to colours.
London and Paris both have underground/metro networks which have different coloured lines on their maps.
