Love locks on the Corkstown Bridge in Ottawa

The Corktown Bridge, also known as the Bridge of Locks in Ottawa, is not the first bridge to be covered in the padlocks of lovers come and gone.  In fact, the tradition seems to have started in Europe in the early 2000s.  The locks are placed on the bridge by sweethearts and symbolize their undying love.

Like my previous Photo of the Moment post, this one was taken during the beautiful Ottawa summer.  I took the photo with my trusty Canon T2i and 15-85mm lens.  The focal length of 35mm forced me to get in nice and close, resulting in the beautifully shallow depth of field at an aperture of f/8.
