There is no doubting the fact that anti-social activity is an ongoing problem in Belfast and that is a great pity because there are some really excellent public facilities provided by Belfast City Council.

Every time I am in Belfast I take a walk along the Lagan Towpath because I really like it. However it does appear to suffer from a high level of anti-social activity and often the street furniture and public art installations [especially ‘Weights 2000’ by Mike Hogg] show signs of unnecessary and unsightly damage and destruction.

But to be fair, when I visited in May 2017, there was much less evidence of damage due to vandalism and the Mike Hogg installation and been repaired. Last May when I could not decided if the installation had been relocated to make way for a new building but the installation was in reasonable condition.

however when I visited in March 2019 the installation was well located but two of the elements were damaged and all had attracted the attention of taggers.

MY MAIN CAMERA

SONY a7RIV

The camera has a full-frame 61MP BSI-CMOS sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range. Personally I find it to be much better than my A7RIII
