Paris, France - October 30, 2013: A thick blanket of “love locks” are attached to the Pont des Arts, one of Paris’ many bridges over the River Seine. The padlocks, left by couples, grew in weight over time, causing part of the railing to collapse in 2014. In 2015, the city removed the locks, estimated at close to one million in umber and weighing 45 tonnes.
