Whole Locka Love

    Newer Older

    Love locks are commonplace in a growing number of countries (although less so in the UK from what I've seen). Romantic couples will write their names, and often the date, on a padlock and attach it to a public space, usually a fence or a bridge. At this location, there was a large number of these, mostly likely due to the fantastic view over Golfo di Napoli and on towards Mount Vesusvius in the background.

    I wanted to get a nice close up of the locks, but also give you a sense of where and why. Please excuse the pun in the title, I couldn't resist it!

      Okay, this is something entirely new to me, the love locks that is.
      Out here in Colorado, we have a lot of places that are called "Lovers Leap".
      I hope there is no similarity between the two ;-)
      Even for a HDR, this shot has a lot of color range to it.
      Well done Conor!

      Great perspective. The enhanced colours really work here. I see this has become world-wide tradition already.
