This week’s photo challenge is ‘layered‘. Whilst searching through my old photos, this one, of a bridge in Paris, caught my eye.
The Pont des Arts used to be centre of a tradition where couples fastened ‘love locks’ on the railings of the bridge and threw the key in the Seine. But apparently, this practice became illegal in 2015 when nearly a million locks, weighing a total of 45 tonnes, were removed from the bridge (BBC).
Even though the locks are now gone, I wonder how many of the couples are still together?
“Here, you and me, 29.04.13”
To me, the locks in the photo not only form physical layers, but each lock — clinging onto its little bit of the space — also has a story behind it. There are layers there, too.
Let me know if you have any thoughts on the subject! Thanks for visiting, and I hope to see you again soon.
Harry Potter is one of the most underrated characters in his own series.
I have never heard anyone say that Harry is their favourite, and a quick Google search of ‘Harry Potter is a bad character’ (or something similar) shows no shortage of people who think he’s the worst. While I must admit that he isn’t my favourite (Ron has that spot reserved — another underrated character I might rant about sometime), here are five reasons Harry is a great character, inspired largely by the unjustified hate he gets from others. Warning: spoilers ahead.
Hello everybody! I hope you’re all well. Today I’m coming to you with a book tag I found on Kirsty’s blog The Bibliophile Girl, called the Reading Habits Book Tag. Like most readers, I have particular preferences when it comes to reading. Here are just a few…
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
Not really. Depending on my mood (and how noisy my family is being!), I could be hanging out on the living room armchair or curled up in bed with the door shut.
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Take a guess! Although, desperate times call for desperate measures, so I have occasionally used a bus ticket…
I’ve customised two of the bookmarks in this photo myself; if you’d like to learn how, take a look here!
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?
Unless the story is really gripping, I can generally stop reading anywhere. Read More
