Piece description from the artist
As almost anyone who has visited Paris in the last few years knows, the Pont des Arts has become the place to proclaim love and leave a declaration "locked" in time. Someone creative had taken a bicycle lock (still keeping with the lock theme) and made it into a heart. I obviously could not resist the temptation to shoot it.
Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, Julia Willard had lived in many cities in the U.S. before moving to Paris in 2006 to pursue several loves. Her adoration for the French way of life only deepened and after completing her MBA program in Paris, she remained in the City of Love and Lights. After a few years there, she moved to Amsterdam for a new adventure, where she again fell in love with a way of life, an attitude toward life, and her new city. Through her attraction to color, light, movement, and all things beautiful, she continued to capture yet another city that had become a true home to her.
