I do not know if it is actually true but it is claimed that Griffith Avenue is the longest purely residential tree-lined Avenue in Europe.

Today I walked along the avenue from Glasnevin Downs to Upper Drumcondra Road but cut short the session as the problem, described below, with my Voigtlander 40mm lens was getting worse with time.

As previously mentioned Dublin City Council is seeking to provide a 3.5km protected cycle lane on both sides of Griffith Avenue from Ballygall Road East as far as the Malahide Road. The main aim of this scheme is to provide protected, safe and continuous cycling for all ages and abilities along this route. This is especially important with the numbers of schools in the area as well as the different DCU campus locations.

To begin with the Voigtlander 40mm lens worked perfectly but when I got to Cremore Road it suddenly got colder I began to notice that the edges of the images captured by my camera were becoming blurred at the edges and as time passed the problem got much worse. After examining my equipment in detail I discovered that there was condensation inside the lens [why I don't know]. I do not know how to prevent this happening in future especially as my apartment is very dry, maybe too dry.
