Day 218 - Project 365 "Locks"

by Trinicia Perch August. 06, 2019 125 views

I had heard about the love locks people were placing on the Pont des Art bridge in Paris and seen pictures of them being removed because they were causing damage to the bridge. So I was very surprised to see this sight as we traveled along the Seine on our trip to Paris. Just had to snap this picture. Thank goodness I did.

At least I think this is the Pont des Art.  Hard to tell from this shot.

They keep putting the locks on as quickly as the city engineers are removing them, its like Sisyphus .... sometimes you take a picture and then you know months later why...nice capture!

Thanks Lee!  Yes it’s a shame people keep doing this, it’s causing so much damage.

WOW!!!! I just don't understand this "tradition"......
I wonder if people remove them, in the case of a "break-up???

Maybe the couples break up because the civil engineers have cut off their locks...better not to do it in the first place...Heidelberg keeps the cut-off locks for one year in case someone wants to claim theirs back

Seems like it's always something, when so many people live in such close quarters......no????
