After visiting Pont Neuf, I walked down towards the next bridge which was Pont des Arts. I thought I might get a few good shots since it was a pedestrians only bridge and had some beautiful architecture across the river. Upon arriving I was blown away by how many locks were attached to the rails. It was very interesting. Every on of them with a love message written on them. I call the love locks. There wasn’t a single square inch of the rails that was visible. The entire bridge sides were covered with locks of all shapes an sizes.
Here is a panoramic of the bridge from the Pont Neuf vantage point. You can see the Eiffel Tower in the distant background. Paris is littered with amazing views like this at every turn.
This is the view I found upon arriving at the bridge. If you look closely at the rails you will see they are completely covered.
Here are some close ups. The panoramic shots are just too big to publish here so below are some crops from just next to the right-most bridge lamp post.
Even closer. I wasn’t kidding when I said the bridge is covered with locks!
