Down Locked Love

Why not lock your love down with a padlock on Pont des Arts or on Pont de l'Archeveche and then throw away the key in the Seine?  Well this is what hundreds of people have done during their time in Paris as a symbol of undying love.  I've seen these locks only a few times in passing, but today it was really quite amazing to get a close up of them and read what others had engraved and written on them.  Some of the locks were really shiny with fresh writing while others were rusted and barely recognizable.  If I ever get a moment I want to put one up in an area where I might be able to find it 10 years from now!

If you want to try this, the locks can be found BHV.
