Love Lock by jxsnyder Love Lock by jxsnyder
I couldn't help but think of the recent article about the removal of all the love locks in Paris when I saw this solitary lock on an overpass bridge near Snoqualmie Falls, Washington.  The article in reference is here:  news.nationalgeographic.com/ne…

Shot with Asahi SMC Takumar 50mm lens and Canon T3i camera.  F4, iso100, 1/60 sec.

Edit:  Thanks Kaz-D for the DD!  I appreciated it!  :D

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-08-27
Love Lock by jxsnyder highlights what used to be a common sight within many cities and towns across the world and ironically portrays what we may expect to see in the future - a single lock because the weight of anymore becomes too much for the bridges that they hang upon. ( Featured by Kaz-D )

Wow, I just found out about the locks! :'0 I recently visited Ottawa and above the Rideau Canal there is one love lock bridge. Thankfully, the railings aren't nearly as filled and the bridge can easily withstand the weight.
This is such a beautiful photo you captured; I love how you focused in on the single padlock and made it stand out. I also like your choice of black and white for this picture. Congratulations for your well-fitted Daily Deviation!

I actually saw the bridge in Paris with all the locks on it: www.google.co.uk/search?q=Pari… this summer and my friend said they remove sections of the wired panelling every so often to reduce the overall weight of the bridge.
