In 2018, Two years after it was removed by Dublin City Council, the Ghost Bike Memorial was back at Grove Road near Harolds Cross Bridge. Actually what I just said is not 100% true as the original bike had a crossbar but the bicycle in my photographs does not.

On 14 January 2009 Paul / Zu Zhang Wong was killed in a road traffic collision with a heavy goods vehicle. Paul, a Chinese national living in Dublin, was cycling to work. He was cycling straight at the junction at Harold's Cross Bridge and was hit by the cement truck which was turning left. A Ghostbike was placed at the scene of the collision exactly one month later.

ZEISS BATIS 85mm LENS

Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Lens for Sony E Mount, Black

I HAVE THIS AND THE 135mm LENS

VERSATILE FULL-FRAME LENS: The powerful lens for the mirrorless full-frame system of Sony fulfills the highest requirements. Despite its compact design, the image meets the expectations of professional photographers. EXCELLENT RESOLUTION AND HIGH CONTRAST: Richly saturated and vivid colours are a must in the creation of lasting impressions. However, stray light within an optical system leads to a lightening of the image that is particularly noticeable in the shadows. This reduces image contrast, with the result that exposures lack contrast and appear faded. To avoid this, ZEISS combines various specially developed technologies to reduce the undesirable effects of stray light. ROBUST AND WEATHERPROOF METAL CONSTRUCTION: Thanks to features that are designed to keep out dust and spray water, the lens is perfectly suited for critical outdoor conditions. It is also designed for many years of intensive use. SMOOTH AND RELIABLE AUTOFOCUS: The design of the autofocus system requires an extremely accurate shifting of particular lens groups. The focusing system of ZEISS lenses is designed to ensure a robust and smooth-running autofocus mechanism with the best imaging performance.
