A WALK ALONG NORTH WALL QUAYALONG THE RIVER LIFFEY

These photographs date from 2019.

I worked for a shipping company located here back in the late 1960s and it has changed a lot since then.

North Wall Quay retains the most obvious links with industry, being located closest to the functioning docks, and bearing remnants of nineteenth-century railway infrastructure. It also has the most open aspect of all the quays, being closer to the sea. The quays form an important part of maritime developments within the city stretching back to the thirteenth century. They are reminders of the economic and maritime development of Dublin as Ireland's principal port.

Stone quay, built c.1800, in two sections, located between Sean O'Casey Bridge and East Link bridge. Mixed cobbled, granite, sandstone and resin-bonded gravel marking modern landscaped paving scheme. Remains of old railway tracks remain embedded within paving scheme to eastern section. Steps and ramps with granite nosed boundary stones to road side. Bounded by modern steel railings. Contemporary developments and original warehouses to inner portion of quayside.

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.
