I found a curious thing on a bridge overlooking the Rio Grande — padlocks. Was this a new type of art or just another trend that I, as an old lady, was unaware of?

And then I saw a photo of Love-Locks Bridge in Paris:

Couples that have found the loves of their lives take a lock, lock it on the fence, and throw the key in the river.

But, proving once again that all good things must come to an end:

One thought on “Love Lock

  1. The bridge over the river Wharfe near my home, and on which I pass several times a day, is adorned with hundreds of padlocks – many have been there for years. It is also near to the local high school, so that could have something to do with it 😉
