Padlocks along the Brooklyn Bridge

It’s safe to assume I did a lot of walking while I was in New York. Walking the Brooklyn Bridge was fun despite the biting cold. Along the way, my girlfriend showed me something extremely sentimental and unique to the Bridge – padlocks. Apparently, these locks were hung by lovers devoting eternal and unconditional love (according to Roman tradition) and tossing the key into the river. You can read an article from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle here about the locks. Here are my photos of the lock (love) ritual on the bridge. Enjoy!

First padlock...

Two locks together?
This lock was a bit lower on the fencing. Perhaps, to deter from removal.
So simple but these locks make me wonder the stories behind them...
What is David's story? Hmmm, a few days before Valentine's Day 2011...
