PARIS, FRANCE - AUGUST 19: Love padlocks are attached to Le Pont Des Arts on August 19, 2013 in Paris, France. In recent years Le Pont Des Arts has attracted tourists who visit the bridge to attach padlocks to the railing or the grate with their names written or engraved on the padlock, and then throw the key into the river Seine as a romantic gesture.
