Love Locks

During my trip to Paris in December 2010 I remember crossing a bridge while roaming the city streets.  On this particular bridge there were locks linked to its fencing.  As I got closer I realized that there were words written on the locks.  Then I realized each lock had names or initials on them. 

I had to look it up what it meant because I had never seen anything like it before.  Wikipedia educated me on the subject.  The locks are called "Love Padlocks" and there is probably a cute love story behind each lock.  It is art, emotions, and real life all rolled into one.
