So true.... I put a padlock there with my late husband's name and mine.
Y aurait-il la clef de l'amour aussi ?...Belle capture Génie... Gros bisous
How do the French say this, ooo la la?
Nothing like love in Paris! Great shot!
Awww... ;)C'est l'amour!You are right, chere Genie...not the same anywhere else. The City has an indescribable magic.Bises,- Irina
Oh, yes! How right you are indeed! I was newly married in Paris, no place quite like it for love! Your photo tugged at my heart strings! Enjoy your week, mon amie!HugsSylvia
That is so sweet, Genie.What's the significance of the padlocks?
Les amoureux du Pont des Arts... Belle capture, Genie! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)
I agree. Am I too old to put a padlock on this wonderful bridge - I've always wanted to..........Young at heart or silly in the head?
A classic image Genie. They seem so in love. I hope it stays with them forever.
Hello Genie:You have captured this romantic moment so beautifully!In Budapest, right in the centre of the town, is a place where padlocks now proclaim the love of couples the world over. Not quite Paris....but nearly!
Cute image, Paris is really a romantic place!Léia
Genie is taking stealth photos again, eh.
No one is either too old nor too young to put a padlock on the bridge. Love the peace symbol on the handbag. All's right with the world: peace and love!
Did you waited long to see a couple? Or was it by accident. Sweet picture.
Pardon moi for being so far behind in reading your blog but I have now caught up. What wonderful memories of our trek to Chartres were brought to mind with your Sunday post! That is a great photo of the buttresses! Oh, and this photo is so sweet --- great capture of the locks of love :)
Vicki Archer had a great blog post on the Best Places to Kiss in Paris. I think the Pont des Arts must be at the top of list! You proved it. Great shot.V
I believe you.
Wonderful photo, what a mood! (The pic of yesterday is fabulous!)
A tender bit of discreet voyeurism, Genie. I had never heard of this padlock tradition. Puckered up on Paris' Pont d'Amour with peace symbol and padlock at hand--a perfect picture!
Ahhh... les amoreux! You're right, there's no place better than Paris to be in love. :)
Romantic and very Paris like. Richard
You are so right! I've kissed a boy (or two) on this bridge myself—there really is no better spot than Paris to be young and in love. Sigh.
I agree with you Genie - and Charles Bridge in Prague comes in at a very close second.
I like her bag with the "Peace" symbol!
Perfect. I like shots like this.
Amazing capture Genie.
Bibi, that is so sweet. Elizabeth, heaven's no! You are never too old for love (or a padlock on Pont des Arts)!Lyn and others, the padlocks of love have been found on bridges in Rome, Banja (Serbia), Prague, Budapest (thanks Jane and Lance!), Paris, and many other city bridges. Now, in Paris after having been cut off Pont des Arts by the city, they appear on both Pont des Arts and Pont de l'Archevâché. They signify the love betwenn the two who affix the lock on the bridge, usually with engraved initials/names and perhaps a date. I heard that the couple throws the key into the Seine forever sealing their love for one another (are you gagging yet?). I added my own little twist in that the couple seals their love for each other and the city of light, promising to return together... Now, can you understand why I added that part?Sylvia, that is so romantic and provides some wonderful memories I am sure.Regarding this couple... I was in a bus with my husband (#72 - the bus not my husband) as we were taking the scenic route along the Seine after spending time at La Tour. I just happened to see them and quickly got two shots. The lighting and colors are just as you see them with the only modification to the original is a crop to take out the "trash can and sign." You can even see a bit of the haze/reflection from the bus window.So glad that you like this one... I really do.Bises,Genie
So romantic Genie, can you believe my son David and his new bride will be in Paris on the 23rd of this month for five days (they're in Spain right now) I'm so hoping that they love Paris as much as I do (really, how could they not!)
C'est très chaud...très Parisien.Roger
Doisneau revisité bravo
Un bisou et un petit cadenas pour sceller leur amourette !!!bisous
Oh là là belle prise!
Genie, My husband and I have a lock there... it meant so much! Paris is what I dream of most, and your blog always brings it home to me!JaneFlora Doora
of course! Love it.
Nice shot Genie!!! It really captures the feeling of young love!!!
El amor presente en toas partes del mundo.Mis cariños.
