    1. Borrowed by Latvia and Finland from China and other Eastern countries apparently! Paris is supposed to be a recent phenomenon inspired by the above 🙂

  1. Beautiful captures, Madhu! Being the archetypal city of love, I’m not surprised Paris has at least one of these sites – there must be more of them scattered around the centre.

    1. Thank you James. You are right, there are two other bridges also encrusted with these locks, the Pont de l’Archevêché and another that I don’t recall the name of. Surprisingly the tradition is supposed to have started as recently as 2008!

    1. That gap in a wall of locks seemed interesting Angeline. And witnessing that couple sealing their undying commitment of course 🙂

      1. I haven’t even thought about how to approach this one this week. I may have to let it slide until I return from my travels. I do really enjoy the challenge of finding a photo/s for the weekly photo challenge, and I look forward to having the time to do it proper justice 🙂

    1. Thanks Suzanne. I went back one evening but messed up most of those night shots. Wish I had carried a tripod.

Let me know what you think
