I was in Salzburg today – did a day trip there. It was a great day to step out – the sun was out and Salzburg seemed like just the place to be in such weather.
Towards the end of the day, I was returning back to railway station and decided to walk (again) instead of taking the bus. Walking along the banks of the Salzach, I came close to the Makart Steg (bridge) to find it all lit up with thousands of LEDs. Its reflection in the waters of the Salzach seemed like the Milky Way with all the LEDs glittering off the water.
So – I thought that would be my story for the theme of the Weekly Photo Challenge. But that wasn’t it – as I got on to the bridge, I saw the thousands of “love locks” – a common romantic gesture, where a lock inscribed with the names of the couple, are secured to a bridge – amidst all those LEDs. And that, my friend, is the story. One might truly say – where there is love, there is light.
More photos from Salzburg will follow in the next few days.
