My goal is to document as many known ‘Love Lock’ locations Around the World. Do you know of any more ‘Love Lock’ locations that are not on the map yet, please share them in the comment section so i can add them to the map! 🙂
A ‘love lock’ or ‘love padlock’ is a padlock which lovers, sweethearts or individuals lock to a bridge, fence, gate, or similar public fixture to symbolize their love. Typically their names or initials are inscribed on the padlock and the key is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love.
Since the 2000s, love locks have proliferated at an increasing number of locations worldwide. They are now mostly treated by municipal authorities as litter or vandalism due to the damage they can cause, public safety, and the cost of removing the padlocks. However, there are authorities who embrace them and who use them as fundraising projects, art or tourism attractions.
So please remember before you hang your ‘Love Lock’ somewhere that you have permission to do so!
Note: because the previous documentation and update page (Updates 29 July 2015 – 7 Dec 2016 http://wp.me/p5oo9E-2Hq) got to long and got trouble with updating & loading, updates after 7 December 2016 will continue here
81 years ago Colonel Robert Wilson made a grainy black and white photo of a shape that resembled a prehistoric creature that was emerging from the icy waters of Loch Ness. The photo was published in the Daily Mail and since then the sightings of Nessie, perhaps the most famous monster in the world, became almost impossible to keep up.
Up to the present day, people are still searching for “Nessie” and even Google has joined the search.
Will they find “Nessie” or is “Nessie” just another legend?
Have you heard of Pareidolia?
Most people have never heard of it but nearly everyone has experienced it.
Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant. Common examples include seeing images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon or the Moon rabbit, and hearing hidden messages on records when played in reverse.
In the early days of the search of Malaysia Airlines MH370 i’ve stumbled on an image at Google maps of an object south of Chatham Island, New Zealand in the South Pacific Sea, which very much looked like a plane crashing into the sea. Could it be or was it an optical illusion?
