    Here's three shots taken within 500m of Milton Keynes Central railway station (MKC) and in the office buildings area, three days ago.

    The building above built quite recently remains empty apart from security

    The gardens shown here are quite old and date from the early developments in this area, with the office building around 20 years old.

    This is probably the oldest feature - laid out before building work started and looking quite mature.

    Only in camera.
    Many thanks for your comments.

    I was using my Canon EF 35 F/2 IS (1/500s at F/8), hand-held and being guided by the "in-viewfinder" square grid on my recent acquisition, a used Canon 5Ds. The 5Ds also has a built-in level, so I really had no excuses, and it's one of the reasons I bought it. (On my computer screen, there's a slight drop in sharpness after uploading to the AP website, despite me sizing and "unsharp masking" the jpeg appropriately.)
    I'm not using the full 50MP regularly, but it's there if I feel I need it. I think the sensor in the 5Ds is the same pitch as that on my 7D MkII, but full frame instead of APSc. The other shots were taken with my TS-E 45mm F/2.8.

    The brickwork on Victoria House must be some of the very best I've seen anywhere - it's simply superb. So regular, and obviously part of the architect's requirements.
