Lock and Key

Whilst out walking I needed to cross the seine so stummbled across the Pont des Art. At first you think, yes it's another bridge so what? but then you look closer...

Pont des Art
Maybe a little closer..

It turns out this is the place to go to publicly declare ones love for another, by placing a lock on the bridge. There were hundreds perhaps thousands of locks lining the bridge, although it is a bit of an eyesore, I guess it's romantic. Apparently it is a bit of a trend at the moment and similar bridges can be found across Europe.
