Trip to France 2012 (Day #14) - Paris - 2012, Jul - 13.jpg

The Pont des Arts. The bridge has become a hotspot for loving couples who lock a personalized padlock to the railing or the grate on the side of the bridge, and then throw the key into the river below. Les Cadenas d'Amour (Padlocks of Love?) started to pop up in Paris in 2008. One night of May 2010 they all disappeared though, but city officials deny they removed them. This explains why most of them are dated post 2010 (see closeup on padlock).
