According to Wikipedia there has been a trend in the 2000s of ‘locking your love’ using a padlock and inscribing your names on the lock – awe – ain’t that sweet? (I’m trying to come across as cynical here … )
When we were in Rome, we found some locks on the Bridge of Castel St. Angelo. They’re more hidden than other ones I’ve seen photographs of on other bridges, probably because authorities are starting to remove these little tokens of everlasting devotion. So I grabbed some shots of them. Being the romantic that I am, I’m hoping that the love is still shining brightly for the couples who placed these under the lights and hidden away.
