I find the train station at Milton Keynes fascinating. Shiny surfaces cover the three buildings that face each other at one end of the large open square. It actually featured in one of the *cough* less good Superman films with Christopher Reeve. I have meant to visit with a long lens for a while. I tried to capture some of the weird abstract reflections in the glass.
People are strange. The Santander bikes around Milton Keynes illustrate the point perfectly. A couple years back Santander Bank, which is based here started a rent a bike scheme. There are bike stations scattered all over Milton Keynes. But something about these cheery little red bikes seems to bring out the worst in some people. Often they are bashed about, stolen and abused. I have found several absolutely pounded to bits on my walks along the redways. Why? Beats me. I have my own bicycle. It was cheap and apart from having a very small frame it is nothing special really. I have four good locks and still I am frightened to leave it anywhere. Sad isn’t it?.
I was planning to start the new year off with some classic cars at Stony Stratford. Somehow I overslept this morning and got off to a really late start. I ended up going to the train station so I took my camera along. I didn’t really get started before the skys darkened in apocalyptic style and a hail storm swallowed me up. Sometimes you have to know when you’re beaten.
Definitely a duvet day. This is my garage roof covered in frozen mosses. (Sony HX400V).
