BOLTON STREET 14 NOVEMBER 2022
This is located at what was Bolton Street College which is still home to some students. Bolton Street College is now part of the new TU University which is nearby. At TU the new Engineering Quad is due to replace Bolton Street building and bring the final part of all the old city centre colleges to Grangegorman.
The colleges which later formed DIT are listed below, each with its year of foundation:
College of Technology, Kevin Street (1887)
College of Music, Chatham Row (1890)
College of Commerce, Rathmines (1901)
College of Marketing and Design, Mountjoy Square (1905)
College of Technology, Bolton Street (1911)
College of Catering, Cathal Brugha Street (1941)
The Sony 85mm GM is supposed to be one of the best lenses that I own but I am not convinced that it is better than my Zeiss Batis 85mm … I must admit that I cannot explain why I have two 85mm lenses. Anyway, today I combined it with my Sony FX30 on which the 85mm is effectively a 130mm lens and in general the results were disappointing as many images were badly focused. Also the GPS was inaccurate but that is likely to be an iPhone problem.
