A reflection and shadows.

By franken
Taken on a recent visit to Cardiff city centre. The reflection is off of the new BBC building and the ground floor has a few shops and takeaways. The glass is tinted so you can't see inside.

I'd sat down for one of my many rests when I noticed the scene. I flicked up the screen on the Panasonic GX7 and this is the result. I didn't noticed the person approaching the seat at my left.
The building in the background is Cardiff central station which appears to be quiet for obvious reasons. In what used to be normal times, the station is the busiest in Wales and the second busiest is Cardiff Queen street station which is about three quarters of a mile away. This station is the main line from Swansea to Paddington. The Queen street one serves the valley lines.

I've added the colour version.

The colour version seems to put a different view on the scene, like a blue cast, so it has to be mono for me. Well done spotting the opportunity offered and also producing a good result.
