Bridge on the Seine
This is the Passerelle Leopold-Sedar-Senghor bridge. That's a lot of names for a bridge, but it's pretty neat because it's actually double decked. It's pedestrian only and links the Jardin des Tuileries with the Musee d'Orsay. Even though it's a single span, it separates as it reaches each bank so you can access it from both road level and the banks of the Seine below. That's the Musee d'Orsay in the background. I took this shot late in the afternoon as the sun was setting behind cloudy skies.
This bridge has some locks on it, but not nearly as many as some of the other bridges close by. I'm guessing it's not quite as romantic or possibly many have come back to reclaim their locks when their romances didn't quite work out.
