Love locks Liverpool

Love locks are an increasingly common sight in Europe. I saw them in large quantities in Vilnius many years ago, and more recently in Liverpool a couple of days ago. While love locks may symbolize eternal and unbreakable love, I can’t but agree with municipal authorities that these represent a nuisance. Not only are they expensive to remove, they also litter up a place. Having said that, however, they do make an excellent subject for photography.



These were a few of many hundred locks that have begun to appear on the chain link fences on Liverpool docks by the Mersey.
