I pulled this picture out of some old photos in my iphoto library. It's of a plaza in el peatonal, a network of pedestrian streets in the heart of downtown Cordoba, Argentina.
When William H. Whyte embarked on a mission to record the regular use of small public spaces, he found that ledges and steps were often used for sitting. I love all of the different combinations of people moving and being still; some standing alone, others walking in a group, some groups circling around as if they have converged from different angles, an older couple walking together. Everyone has their own intentions, yet they play off of each other. The whole scene fits together nicely.
