'Love locks' are seen on a fence under the Brooklyn Bridge in New York on July 28.
This phenomenon has increased in recent years as couples looking to publicly mark anniversaries, weddings, engagements and other significant dates affix locks to bridges and fences. 'Love locks' can be found not only in New York, but in Paris, Rome, Zurich and many other cities around the world. Reuters/Carlo Allegri
