Weekly Photo Challenge: Layered

P5050489_235 (1)

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?

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up

This week’s photo challenge is ‘Look up‘. Most people take their photos from the top of the Eiffel Tower or in front of it, but this a view from underneath. Let me know what you think!

If you’re still reading (and have noticed my *ahem* prolonged absence) I just want to apologise for the unintended hiatus. Blogging has always been a precarious activity for me, and one I’m best at when I have just the right number of other tasks to complete. It is my refuge when I have to read four books a week, but becomes bit too much when exams come around. On the other hand, when I find myself with nearly nothing to do, I lose the drive to be productive. I let ideas sit in my head instead of churning them out and posting them.

I’m using the weekly photo challenge as a step back into the blogging world. This website has seen more activity in the past few years than ever before, and I don’t want to ruin that. So hopefully, this post is the first of more to come this month. Rest assured that some Friday Fictioneers and Resolution Recaps are on their way, along with the usual ramblings and rants (and lots of alliteration, it seems).

Stay tuned, and until next time!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Circle
