Locks-of-love trend latches on to bridges across the world

By Mark Angeles

Some of the bridges are well-known, and others do not even have a name, but they share something hopeful - and somewhat heavy. From Paris to Prague and from Brooklyn, New York to Bydgoszcz, Poland, a phenomenon of sorts has been occurring at these bridges over the past few years involving the seemingly unrelated subjects of love and padlocks.

The premise is simple - a couple will visit the bridge and fasten a lock there as a symbol of their enduring, hopefully unbreakable love. The keys will then be thrown into the river below, implying that there will never be a need to unshackle these bonds of compatibility.
