Love locks are padlocks affixed to a bridge or other public structure by lovers to symbolize their everlasting love.  Along the Seine in Paris, the Pont de Notre Dame and Pont des Arts are two bridges peppered with these locks.

  1. That is so sweet. I think I prefer the bottom one, as it shows the amount of padlocks there are

  2. It would be great to have these love locks around the world. Unfortunately, in my little corner, you’d probably be arrested for defacing public property, or something.

  3. I’ve heard about the locks! That’s super cool 🙂


I love hearing from you!
