Haha - perhaps this couple has just put on this lovelock- or will decide to do it after taken a picture of the famous Brunel bridge?
Chris: I think they might just be thinking about it..

I think that the padlock thing is one of the most hideous and inappropriate aspects of modern coupleage Tiff.
Chris: D'you remember all those THOUSANDS of locks we experienced on the river bridge in Cologne Chad?

It's worth saying that young people like to copy each other..

Just think of all the great and mighty that have stood at this spot taking photographs of that bridge. I wonder if the craze for adding locks to railings was started by a firm of padlock makers?
Chris: It would be a good marketing play

Incredible sight of the bridge in Paris; the city of lovers, I suppose. (Unlike Las Vegas - the city of losers).
Chris: Surprising the bridge doesn't topple over
One of the great stupid ideas. I see now that some pillocks decided to have the ring delivered by an owl at their wedding. Happily it was a total fiasco
Chris: Good
Oh well ....padlock sales keep the ironmonger happy
Chris: Old Chinese proverb?

I was just going to mention that bridge in Cologne..... idiocy... nonsense... I like your picture though.
I heard youth has a new disease.... iPhone stress... 1 out of 5 suffers from it.... and also youth suffer from neck hernias because of always having their head down to look on the screen.... I am getting old, Chris....(I hear myself talking).....
Chris: Yup - you will soon be sounding just like your Mother Astrid!

We all get like this..
The fellow is not too sure about the situation.
Chris: He may be wondering where this is all going to lead..
Interesting body language...
Chris: He's not sure Larry..
Maureen and I didn't leave a lock behind when we stood and photograohed the great bridge back in the early 70's, mind you nobody had probably thought of the stupid idea at that time!
Chris: Yes it is a stupid idea Brian

We noticed that there were some on our local bridge - what a pointless exercise!
Chris: Isn't it just. Probably a juvenile thing Anne, like ripping your jeans..
A totally idiotic idea - other places are removing them from bridges and the like, so permanence is not guaranteed!

As for Tomas Olsson - he died in 2006 attempting to ski down the North Face of Everest.
Chris: Went out in a blaze of glory then Tom..
Wow, it must be awesome to look down from the bridge
