Grasses Along the Walk

When we were out walking yesterday, we climbed the famous "Tilly Steps" which gain about a hundred feet in altitude. The steps were restored about 10 years or so ago. On the way up the steps I noticed these stalks of grass growing against a poured concrete wall by the steps. What is interesting is that generally for grasses like this, we never see then silhouetted - they are always in a bunch, in a field. That's why these jumped out - because they were individual "stalks." I thought the composition only needed just the grasses, but this bunch had the curving vine coming into the frame from the top - that added the extra something.
