Les Images

Une image vaut 1 000 mots. Ça c’est la réalité, cruelle et laide (pas le romance) des « cadenas d’amour » à Paris.

A picture is worth 1,000 words. This is the harsh, ugly reality (not the romance) of “love locks” in Paris.

  1. I can see that these locks are damaging and I understand the concerns, but the idea is romantic and part of me loves that the French permitted such liberty to begin with. I live in Australia and we are so regimented. There’s a law governing everything, helmets to ride bikes, no drinking alcohol at a picnic in a public park, no smoking within ‘coo-ee’ of anyone or anything, no dogs at open air cafes etc etc and the list goes on.

    1. The French never permitted “love locks.” The have always been considered vandalism by the letter of that law, and have been destroying the heritage sites of the city. Please do not confuse lack of resources to remove over a million locks as consent of this practice. One person’s expression of love should not come at the expense of another’s heritage—or the beauty of their city. My Australian friends do complain about “the nanny state” in Australia, so we understand your point there, but this is about preserving these cherished sites before they are gone forever. Paris receives nearly 34 million visitors a year; this had to be controlled.
