  2. Thanks for the links. I’ve seen love locks in Madrid and along the Cinque Terre in Italy and I didn’t know what they meant.

  4. That whole story started a few years ago in Florence, Italy on the Old Bridge and it became such a nuisance that authorities had to forbid it.

  13. I really love your second photo. The two people in the foreground are so obviously delighting in each other’s company, and I think the woman behind them is just a little envious.

  17. I love ++++ the innocent shot in street!! I’m not sure , really I don’t like the concept of ‘Love Locks’ ….Love is freedom and not to be ‘locked’ …

  18. Hi Frizz,
    I’ve seen the Locks of Love on Ponte Vecchio in Florence–even feature them in a scene of the novel I’m working on–so it was fun to see them in your post. I also really appreciate the photo of the couple.
