Love Locks by tonydebont

Love Locks

Some of the many thousands of padlocks attached to fences and other structures at the base of the N Tower atop Namsan Mountain in Seoul. Not sure where the practise originated or why it is prevalent in Korea but saw the same thing in Pusan when we visited there last month.

Many thanks for your visits and comments. I will try to upload on a daily basis but will have limited time to browse and comment.

For more information and to follow the progress of our time away I am maintaining a 'blog', if you are interested, here is a link http://2013cruise.travellerspoint.com/
Ah - l'Amour! Saw something similar in Paris but naturally not on such a huge scale or so colourful! Over there, they locked the padlock and threw the key into the Seine - the lock would never be undone and neither would their love. Ahhh... :)

Lovely shots and collage. This habit is taking on here as well.

@filsie65 I believe there's a European origin Phil. The shots represent only a small portion of the whole site.

@sangwann Thanks Dione, the manufacturers of padlocks must be very happy.

@tonydebont Just caught up with your daily 'blog' Tony - what a wonderful way to keep a record of all the wonderful things you're doing! I don't blame Jenny for being concerned.. I'm concerned and miles away, but all the news is about Margaret Thatcher and it's hardly mentioned over here so perhaps it's not as serious as it sounds. Hopefully it's all posturing and anti-US and you're as safe there as anywhere :)
(PS Glad the nuns were going to the cathedral btw! )

@filsie65 G'day Phil. Glad you found the blog interesting. It takes some time to write it up each day but gives people that are interested a look at what we're up to.

@tonygig Thanks Tony, there is so much happening here that is unusual, difficult to pick one topic.

@x1nij Thanks Marley, I suspect there are many more 'public' places where this occurs. So far they appear at places where people go to look out over the local city.

Wow! I have always wanted to see this place!
