Now they are covering the grill work with plywood that has been painted by artists and later, plexiglass will protect the bridge and still allow a view of the Seine without allowing the placement of these locks. Do you remember seeing these locks as a challenge on Amazing Race?
The grill work on the bridge brings to mind all of the ironwork that I find as inspiration for my quilts. Why do I often find my feet in photos? I am taking pix of the utility manholes on the streets and sidewalks. I have a folder of them from all the cities that I visit. These are some to add to my collection from France.
And I love door hasps and any other architectural iron details.
