Love Padlocks

During a recent stroll around our town, my better half and I discovered a large grouping of padlocks attached to a fence that ran across a bridge that was over some subway tracks.  At the time we had no idea what could be the purpose of doing this.  Upon researching it further, I discovered that these locks are most likely attached to the fences as "Love Padlocks."  Found throughout the world, Love Padlocks are often affixed to bridges and symbolize the love between two people. Sort of a "locking up" of the love and throwing away the key.  I was somewhat relieved to read this, as I feared it was gang related (I give you permission to laugh at the country girl).


  1. Hee hee, I'm giggling at you a little bit for thinking it was gang activity. Gang stuff is usually more word or symbol related.

    I've never heard of love padlocks, either, but I think it's really cute.

  2. That's about the cutest thing ever!! Will have to remember this :)

  3. I've never heard of Love Padlocks either.
    It's so romantic!

  4. Aw, love it! Don't worry, you're not crazy, my first thought would have been gang related too.

  5. great photos! we have start marketing these in the US, as they are currently very popular overseas. check us out.
