Love Locks

Love Locks

I saw these locks attached to a bench outside a high school, and I was reminded of love locks. There are locations in the world where padlocks are locked to public objects. These padlocks are called love locks, and symbolize a couple’s unbreakable love. Once the padlock is locked, the key is thrown away, a gesture that shows the extent of their commitment to each other. I doubt that the locks pictured here were love locks, but I like to imagine why they were placed there.
