LOVE LOCK BRIDGE - COLOGNE, GERMANY

LOVE PADLOCKS
HOHENZOLLERNBRUCKE BRIDGE
COLOGNE, GERMANY

Imagine a very long bridge across the Rhine River and on this bridge were over 40,000 padlocks hanging on the bridge and representing an endless stream of couples who have come to publicly honor their love by locking a lock to the fence and then throwing the key in the river.  These padlocks have added 2 tons of weight to the bridge, causing local officials to question how the long practice can be sustained.  You have to see this bridge to believe it.  Photographs do not do it justice.  You can literally see padlocks spanning across the bridge for as far as your eyes can see.  The locks range from large to small and are every shape and color you could imagine.  This was a pretty amazing sight.
