Foto-Friday, every Friday a new picture
I had set off out to photograph because it was foggy.
But as the afternoon wore on, the fog dissipated and it was just another autumn day. Heading home I decided to walk over the bridge, and despite the lack of summer heat, there was still one brave guy happy to make a splash!
This really surprised me. In the summer scores of kids leap from this bridge! They stand on the rail and tease the crowds like the showmen (it’s nearly always boys) that they are, until after some false starts and feinted leaps they plunge into the river below, of course while the diver is wooing the crowd, his friends are around asking for a coin or two to help convince him to jump… (and yes virtue signallers, I give the money thanks for asking).
But this kid… I dunno if it was just a practice season, but he really was doing it for the thrill of the spill and no other reason.
And once he’d leapt, he’d haul himself from the water and get straight back up on the bridge and leap again.
