We seldom are in the right place at the right time, camera in hand, with a few minutes to savor the moment. But it did happen . . . at least once. During a day of sightseeing in Moscow, we were scheduled to meet our guide on the Luzhkov bridge where, we learned later, lovers hang padlocks on tree-shaped structures, symbolizing their eternal love for one another.
And just as we arrived, so did a bride and groom! We witnessed the ceremony first-hand with the wedding couple “in the moment,” pledging their support of one another!
So, enjoy the time-old Russian tradition just as we did.
And enjoy your Happy Valentine’s Day today!
