Locked Hopes

Here in the US, you may have commonly seen locks on bridges, fences, gates, or similar public fixture to symbolize unbreakable love..the "love locks" as they are often referred to..

These caught my attention while we were visiting the Brooklyn bridge in NYC...I wondered about the people who placed them here...with lots of hopes..where are they now??..are they still together or have they moved on..??.. do they even remember they did this once... for some it may be a bitter sweet memory...




Hmmm... contemplating.??....... I took this shot and moved on...

Have a great weekend guys..xoxoImages @ Shaz Originals

  3. Now authorities are considering this as vandalism. I am just imagining how much time it takes to clean this! Reminds me of an old hind song " tujhe dil mein band karke, daariya mein pekudu chaabi". It is now Bridge than dil :)
