Man on a Bridge

This evening, as I queued to cross the bridge over the Mersey, I passed this man standing staring at the water below. In the five minutes or so I was queued alongside, he didn't move.

Now I'm sure there's some good reason why a man with a bright pink inflatable ring is standing looking at the Mersey, it's just I'm not sure what that reason might be.

I suppose we can be fairly sure that anyone contemplating suicide, would probably not do so with lurid pink accessories.

Or come to think of it, any accessory in the buoyancy/life-saving genre of things.
