Locked Away

Gate full of padlocks

In the spring of 2019, I was in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. While on a night tour, I came across a fence. The fence was barely visible. All I was able to see was hundreds of padlocks that were locked onto the fence. The tour guide explained to me that people buy a lock, write their name on it and lock it to the fence. Some people write their name with another’s name, showing how their connection to that person will be eternal.


TECH INFO: Canon EOS 70D with a Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 (at 21mm); 1/25 sec at f/2.8, ISO 2000;  I flipped the pictured in this story for graphic reasons.
