Locks of Love

The thousands of locks that cling to the fences of the Pont des Arts in Paris have become a symbol of danger rather than love after a chunk of fencing fell off under their weight. The fencing tumbled late Sunday on the pedestrian bridge, which crosses the Seine. The locks are periodically removed by the city, but spring up ever faster. - USA Today, 6/9/14
