Lock in the LOVE..



There are so many exciting things going on in Perth right now with the Fringe World Festival and the Perth Festival (check it out),both in full swing. I zipped into the city yesterday to see what was happening in the 'Pleasure Garden' but got side-tracked along the way. The Lock in the Love installation sitting two and a half metres high on Murray St. isn't your usual 'love-lock' situation.. more a foil for writing messages of good luck, good health, perhaps remembering a loved one past.. the $10 raised from each lock sold going to the Heart Foundation. It's going to be a GIANT weekend, literally, coming up.. looking forward to much ribald, risque burlesque and sharing it with you :) Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

  1. At the very least, it's a good cause, and doesn't do damage to bridges.

  2. A very clever idea and it beats the love-lock on bridges by far.

  7. That's nice. Much better than love locks. And not permanent.

  8. Wow, you are so lucky, I've seen them all over the country except of course it isn't in Minnesota yet!

  9. Very worthy of a donation. Meanwhile bridges around the world are collapsing under the weight of padlocks.

  10. Нарешті чудова ідея як застосувати замки кохання і не завантажувати мостів )))))

  11. Neat to have a Fringe Festival in town. We need to drive about 20 miles to the closest one. I love the folks that show up in St. Augustine from Edinburgh. Great groups / musicians / performers.

  12. Now that is a much better idea than those awful love locks I saw on the bridges in Paris! Can't wait to see more festival pictures Grace.

  13. At least in this place the locks are going on structures that have been specifically created for the purpose of holding locks, so there is no structural damage to bridges that were never intended to hold these locks.

  14. Lovely concept for a noble cause

  16. That installation is so much better than the potentially destructive love locks on Paris bridges!

  17. I would love to add something to that one.

  18. Love the idea of participatory art. And a fund raiser to boot.

  19. What a beaut idea to provide a dedicated spot for locks and for using it to raise funds such a good cause.

  20. A much better way to show your love than attaching them to an historic bridge! I like that this supports charity as well.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Better that charity benefits than the shops selling the locks.

  22. For a moment I thought Oh no, no more love locks anymore. I hate those stupid locks. But I see this is different and rather pretty. But beware of the love locks!

    ReplyDelete
  23. That is so lovely! A fantastic idey and so much better than attaching them to bridges...

    ReplyDelete
  24. This is a good idea, not like putting padlocks were they don't belong, like on bridges or monuments!

  25. Festival time, sure sounds like a lot of fun. Enjoy, who need to sleep anyway?

  26. I'm laughing here because what VP said is exactly what I was thinking! ;))

  27. Very clever! Tom The Backroads Traveller

  28. Indeed there are lots of exiting things in Perth! I would love to drink coffee here too! :))

  29. I always thought these locks of "love" were kinda silly; it's kinda like carving a heart with initials into a tree but less destructive unless of course you put a bunch of locks on a bridge in Paris and the bridge begins to sink into the Seine. Perth has a much better idea. Better yet - send a card! :)
