Love Locks in Paris
“Love Locks” is suggested to have started in 1998 as a representation of love lasting. The superstitious or simply romantic make a gesture of love and hope at places like Le Pont des Arts by sealing their love and locking it up with padlock then throwing away the key. Unfortunately for the footbridge, one panel of these locks weighs as much as 1,500 pounds. Locals are said to think that love locks are an eyesore and a danger after one section of Le Pont des Arts’ safety railing collapsed under the pressure of Love Locks. Then again, it’s been said that some locals think the Eiffel Tower is an eye sore. Much like New York graffiti, beauty and vandalism are in the eye of the beholder.
