Photo of the day: The locks of love on the Seine river, Paris

The bridge of la Tournelle on the Seine river in Paris with the many locks tourists attach to Parisian bridges in the foreground.

Binding a lock as a couple and throwing its key in the river is supposed to symbolize an eternal love. Paris being the city of love, bridges are covered in them! Some parts of the fence on the pont des arts (bridge of the arts) even fell down, and the city hall tries to prevent tourists from doing so.
