Talking to someone is nice. or "It is nice to talk to someone." but "It was nice, talking to you." Why?

General statement: a. Talking to someone is nice. (verb as subject in front position = gerund) or b. It is nice to talk to someone. (verb as subject after dummy subject 'it' = full infinitive) Specific situation: It was nice, talking to you? (**Why?** Is it a mix of a. and b.?)
