And the love keeps growing and growing

Love Locks displayed at the Prada Marfa art installation near Valentine have now grown to over 500 since the trend was noticed last year. “Cadenas d'amour” in French, are padlocks that are attached to bridges, statues, fences or monuments by couples or individuals as a symbolic gesture of love. No one quite knows exactly where or when the trend began; some claim it began in China, others say in Rome or Florence, Italy. Photo by Lisa Morton
