Just Sitting - Bullring Birmingham

I took this photograph because I liked the curviture of the seating
and the spacing of the people, but they were together!
The Steps in the distance, leading down to the lower area have a new waterfall along side,
the picture is below, I have changed it from colour into mono to give this dramtic contrast
