Valentines Day is a day marked with all sorts of gestures and declarations of love! Perhaps the most iconic, and indulgently cliché, is securing a lock to Le Pont des Arts in Paris! When I visited Paris, I thought this was just grand! An ordinary bridge which has become a place to fix symbols of love. Here are some of my favorite pics of this special place.
“[Le Pont des Arts]… glitters like gold sequins as the thousands of locks left by decades of lovers catch the light of the afternoon sun.
These locks mark a moment when love was declared to last forever. And this is something unmistakably beautiful.”
Excerpt from A Five Day Conversation with Paris: Day 1
Have a wonderful Friday, and a very special Valentines Day everyone!
