PonyFish Island Padlocks

The padlocks have been removed. 20,000 signs of committed love cut from the sagging wires of the foot bridge. Stored in buckets until the City Council can figure out what to do with them. They lasted for 3 years and due to their weight and that other cities like Paris were removing their padlock chains (apparently because the fad is over) we have lost ours too. A few weeks ago I just happened to be on the river after work with a friend and we stopped to take a few practice pics of the evening views and the city skyline as the light faded and the city lights kicked in.
