    I’ve heard of this place.
    Interesting concept, and a nice capture.

      i agree it’s an interesting concept as it’s much preferable to graffiti.

    I have heard about these things and yet I have never really seen or been to one. Sounds interesting.

      you’re probably not looking. 🙂 it’s all over the world. you can find them affixed to fences and bridges as symbols of everlasting love between two people. after placing the locks, the keys are thrown away.

    I have seen similar ones in Venice.
    Great pic.
    Happy WW!

    It’s pretty much everywhere.. too bad the love locks in Paris had been taken down.

    Anyway, I saw ones in Melbourne on the bridge. There’s also a small spot here in Singapore (Clarke Quay) that has love locks with a twist — they are adorned with pictures of couples, like neoprints or something. And another spot in SG with almost the same concept except that they use bells instead of padlocks (I believe you already saw it in my blog) 🙂

      it’s a cool idea, don’t you think? if only all relationships last as long as the padlocks!

    i appreciate this because the view is something different. in the Ph, some groups are attempting to replicate the classic love locks somewhere along katipunan qc.. it’s placed within the overpass. i have yet to see it. hopefully the mmda and traffic enforcers haven’t removed it 🙂
