I read that the residents of Upper Mayor Street were complaining that they effectively lived on a building site for close to twenty five years and that the end result is that they are now deprived of sunlight because of the hight of the recently completed buildings.
When I walked the section of the street from the canal to the Point Village, on a really sunny day, I was more than surprised by how dark and gloomy it was especially when I passed by a short terrace of small two-up-two-down houses. In some photographs you will notice some sunlight that manages to shine through but it is isolated and limited to minutes rather than hours
I also passed a sign indicating that I was at Coopers Cross a location that I had been aware of. I later discovered that Coopers Cross comprises an entire city block (fronting Mayor Street Upper, Castleforbes Road, Sheriff Street Upper and New Wapping Street) and at 5.9 acres represents one of the largest undeveloped sites in Dublin’s CBD. It forms part of the Docklands SDZ (Strategic Development Zone), which facilitates the regeneration of the Docklands and already has planning permission for 449 PRS (private rented sector) units.

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.
