love locks

The Pont des Arts, the centre of this trend in Paris, was beginning to collapse beneath the weight of the thousands of public declarations of affection. Municipal Paris workers have descended with bolt-cutters to peel away the padlocks.
I am a sucker for romance, and that, combined with my ever-willingness to take part in a good art project (that doesn't require too much of my limited artistic talent), made me a perfect candidate to add my padlock to the budding Shoreditch love lock fence.
