Claire and Michael - January 2014

In a barbed wire canoe....

An old European tradition seems to be gaining a foothold here, no doubt (with the greatest of respect to Clare and Michael whose lock tells me they were celebrating their first anniversary), spurred on by commercial interests from interested parties such as the people making these heart shaped locks.

Originally the tradition had the lock clasped to a bridge stanchion on the wedding day of those concerned, and the key thrown into the water so that the bond could never be broken.

I am not sure what the symbolism in the barbed wire is.... hopefully it's not a reflection of that first year.

Love locks here are a bane on fences and bridges.
