Flash of Red - Found 2

Carole and popped out to catch the sunset this evening, we hoped it would be along the river; it wasn't, it wasn't even near and to add injury to insult, it was cr@p. Did catch these padlocks on the bridge (not a patch on Point Neuf in Paris) which I thought would fit the bill for this week's tag

Thanks for dropping by
Yes definitely a found object!

Nice find, I must admit I didn’t see this at all.
@30pics4jackiesdiamond haven’t seen it in this country very much. We first saw it on one of the bridges across the Seine in Paris. A way of declaring your love for someone & I suppose if it’s padlocked to something, they think it will last forever. However in Paris, they had to remove them, because they became so heavy & I think were causing damage. A popular trend, but not seen here particularly.

@carole_sandford we saw loads in Bakewell, so it's beginning to trend.

Good for the topic, a trend that is gaining traction in the USA also....I think there are locks made specifically for this purpose...I've seen engraved locks with couples' names. Marketing at it's finest.

Unusual to see a lock with Christmas on it. Sorry you didn’t catch a sunset.
