In a previous post (http://www.rubbertrampartist.com/2016/03/07/love-locks/), I wrote about love locks I’ve seen in a couple of locations in California; at the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge in Taos County, NM; and on North Fourth Avenue in Tucson, AZ. In this post I want to share more of the photos I took of love locks in various locations.
Most of the locks I saw at South Creek Falls were rather plain and didn’t excited me enough to take a photo. (It was also a cloudy day, so the light was uninspiring.) The only lock that caught my eye was one with an allover coat of pink paint and bright blue the writing.
When I walked across the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge–for the first time in over a year–in the fall of 2015 , I saw more love locks than I had ever seen before. I guess love locks are a thing now. I wonder if the NMDOT (New Mexico Department of Transportation, the government organization which maintains the Gorge Bridge) comes along periodically and removes the locks.
This lock (seen at the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge in the fall of 2015 ) is so sweet. I hope Nolan and Anita love each other forever.
I saw so many love locks on the heart sculptures in Tucson! I took a lot of photos of love locks there. It’s difficult to pick out just a few photos to share.
Where have you seen love locks? Please leave a comment telling about your love locks sightings. Have you and your sweetie ever left a love lock somewhere? When? Where? Why? Please share those stories too.
All photos in this post were taken by me.
I recently discovered your blog. I’ve seen your posts on The Non-consumer Advocate FB group and was interested in reading your blog posts documenting all your expenditures for the year. I’ve never heard of love locks before and really enjoyed learning about them. Also, I had no idea what a “Rubber Tramp” was! Thanks for sharing and I look forward to more of your adventures.
Thank you for this nice comment, Dawn. I’m glad you have enjoyed my posts about documenting my spending, and it’s nice to know I taught someone something new. Sharing my experiences is really fun for me.
Thanks for reading!
