Padlock bridge #1
Actually, it’s a bridge in Salzburg. It’s one of those bridges that the romantically inclined adorn with padlocks.

It’s fair to say that I’m not really a fan of this phenomenon, but it does offer some photo opportunities. This pedestrian bridge is very busy, so it was tricky to compose any shot without a group of tourist stopping directly in front of me to take their own photos.
In the end, I got the shot that I wanted. I was also surprised by the extent of the bend in the bridge. Maybe I wasn’t paying enough attention to my surroundings, as I focused on photo opps.
