Pont Neuf


From the Locks of Love capital of the world, the Pont des Arts

The perfect place to watch the sun go down .... I believe every now-and-again these locks are cut off and disposed of ....... I've never seen it anything but jam-pack full.
Youve captured lovely soft lighting on Pont Neuf.

Si cela continue, le pont des arts va s'écrouler sous le poids des cadenas.

For real treat visit Pont Neuf on a Monday when the weather is nice and watch Didier Lespagnol paint beautiful watercolors of the bridge and Cité

Jeff,
I think I might have told you that I have many of Didier's prints. He's a most persausive French painter! HA I usually see him at Place des Vosges or the arts fair at Bastille.

It is photogenic, that is for sure. At least until all the weight of love collapses the bridge. There is probably some meaning there, but I can't figure it out.

What a beautiful photograph this is. Such a wonderful composition.

Even in the cold I would still like to be there.

I like this photo because it makes le Pont des Arts look like it's sinking into the Seine from the weight of all the locks.

Alexa said...

It really does, Starman! Don't think I've ever seen it with so many locks at once. Great composition, V!

A sweet, lovely sigh. Beautiful image.

I love the perspective in this photo, the sort of echo you've created. Someone, an American in Blogland recently sharply criticized the custom of the locks. So they do get removed periodically & then the fence gets filled again...is that bad? I don't know, but I love that people keep getting to have this sweet experience & feel part of a tradition...

Interesting juxtaposition!
