The locks of love, part #2

Do you remember back in January when I wrote about the “love locks” I found on Brooklyn Bridge in New York, and how they hailed from a tradition started by an Italian novelist, Federico Moccia? Well, it looks like the tradition has also made its way over to England…

You’ve got to keep your eyes open in London – there’s so much going on that it’s easy to miss the small things sometimes. Next time you’re walking over Hungerford Bridge or Tower Bridge have a look, because these bridges are covered in declarations of long-lasting love!

I’m glad to see this tradition being continued in loved-up London! What do you think of it? Would you declare your love in this way?

    Hey Ali, nice photographs, well spotted! There are a few appearing on Millennium Bridge recently too, have a look next time you are crossing. I actually just used this concept as part of a design for Converse in Berlin, check it out here – – http://atsukojoe.wordpress.com/2012/07/07/pro-berlin/
