about LOVE LOCKS: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_padlocks
love locks are in Rome, Vrnjačka_Banja (Serbia), Moscow, Paris, Helsinki, Salzburg, Munich, Pécs (Hungary), Guam, Montevideo, Seoul, Tokyo, Kiev, Seville, Toronto etc.
there you can read: “Love locks have also appeared in Florence, Rome (Ponte Milvio), Guam, Montevideo, Seoul, Tokyo, Kiev, Seville and other major cities. In Rome the practise was given a huge boost in 2006 by a romantic movie called ‘Ho Voglia di Te’…”

  1. Now I *need* to know if there is anyplace in Canada that does this!


  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.


  5. I love that intimate street shot.


  6. they are everywhere…these locks.
    I really love the second image…just how love should look


  7. Hard to believe they haven’t done this theme for a challenge before. Love your second photo.

  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.


  14. In China they have love locks too. They’re at the temples.

  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.


  19. ohw..the 2nd photo is so romantic


  20. Amy

  21. Love love love. Best to you from Pittsburgh. Hope you enjoy my Airedale love.



  22. What happens with the locks after the end of the love /?

    Seen in antalya – turkey:


  23. That second shot says it all. A very sweet couple, and a great shot.
