45 Metric Tons of Love

Pont des Arts, Île-de-France

Padlocks left on the Pont des Arts in Paris by lovers young and old. The keys were thrown into the Seine according to ancient tradition. Not really though - the "tradition" only lasted for 7 years. By 2015 they numbered around the million mark and were removed for the sake of the bridge's structural integrity. The bridge is now decorated with padlock-themed street art on light-weight and unpadlockable wooden boards.
