Love locks

by Berckmans Peter December. 06, 2018 188 views

This is something we come around in many places. Not sure what the meaning is , you wanna chain your loved one and put a lock on it. Not a big fan of it because there is not much originality in it. A hartshaped metalwork where you can put locks on. I have seen it on a bidge, much better. I guess it started small and has grown global.

What do you think about it.

Nice framing for an excellent picture. What I think? The flower shops have Valentinsday and Mothersday and the locksmiths have bridges - damned good pr! I don't like coins in fountains or locks on bridges, they are destroying public objects.

It does seem an odd tradition. I seem to recall there was a bridge in Paris where they had to remove all the locks as the weight was too much for the historic structure to bear!

Or maybe it is something for a younger generation

I've seen this kind of thing almost everywhere I went. It is a trend like others. It will pass.

Well, it was nice as long as it was indeed not a hype. Left alone that now grills are installed for the single purpose of putting those locks on it.

Hadn't heard of this before, but I'm not sure I like to associate love with locks. It made an interesting photo though!

I've seen this every big city, close to water, I have travel to. The most recent one in Naples, Italy. I read what Andi wrote down. I think it's stupid ( not what she wrote but what it all means). It makes a good photograph though smile

I don't like them either. 
It works like this: you write your names (Or first letters) on the lock, then, you lock it to a marvellous bridge, like the Brooklyn bridge, then you throw the key in the water. As you are not able to unlock the lock anymore, the love will last forever. 
Meanwhile, you show everyone how MORON you are for ignoring history and an amazing masterpiece, by minding your own business and do what you want... because, you are better than the Brooklyn Bridge, right? Or a 115 before Christ bridge...
(Not you YOU... YOU THEM... HUMANS)

And I'm VERY VERY SORRY to tell you... this stupid thing, came from a young adult Italian book. 
SORRY WORLD.
