Paris: Lover's Lock Bridge

My brother and I stumbled this bridge (the Petit Pont de l’Archevêché just east of Notre Dame) and stopped for a moment to figure out why there were so many locks on it. It has something to do with love and eternity and what not. The French hate it. They think it's tantamount to graffiti (kind of a funny position to take considering how much graffiti is left uncleaned all over the city), but we thought it was an amusing distraction. And it's certainly keeping the French lock companies in business.

Interesting post. Any clarity on the story behind any of the locks you saw.
