Those of you following my blog for some time, already know I’m collecting images of love locks from everywhere I see them. I already posted some of these images here.
Today, I assume, is a very good opportunity to show you another image.
Usually, lovers pick a symbolic place for their love lock. Often, the community government don’t like the huge amount of locks attached i.e. to a bridge or another kind of building. Recently, I read about the bridge in Paris, right behind the Notre Dame, where the city government was forced to remove the locks because the enormous wight was destabilizing the bridge.
Here, in front of the light house the city government set up a grid wall for attaching love-locks and called it “Schlosspark”. “Park” means park and “Schloss” is chateau or castle. But, the German word for a lock is also “Schloss”. And the German word “Park” can also mean “to park”. So, the name of the grid is a play on words: “park your lock” – or so :).
As you can see, despite many couples already attached their love-lock at the grid, there is still plenty of room.
Do you also have such places, where you live, where couples attach such locks? Feel free, to tell me in the comment section below.
Happy valentines day!

Love locks everywhere. This is ridiculous. Its nice to have them on Pont des arts in Paris and Hohenzollern Bridge in Cologne, but at a lot of other places, its is becoming inflatonary.
yep, some locations are really ridiculous. But, in general, I like the variety of locations couples have chosen.
