Why is the bridge so important while kissing?

Super Moon. If you are a star gazer, you pretty much know what this is. I am a photographer and not a star gazer. So, I take this to be a good photo opportunity. The big question is where in Paris would I get a beautiful composition of the Super Moon. I decided on the popular bridge Pont des Arts. If you check this on Google Maps, you will have to zoom in to actually see the bridge on the maps. 

Paris, once again, played truant on Sunday. The sky was overcast. As a result, the moon was not visible, even one and a half hours after sunset. There was a brief moment in which the lower edge of the moon was visible through the clouds. But it was not long enough to take a good picture.

With a lot of time to kill in the cold night on the bridge, there is one phenomenon I noticed. There were a lot of lovers on the bridge embraced in a passionate kiss ignorant about the surroundings. I do not have anything against kissing. It is a good mechanism to indicate passion or affection. While it is passion which is under scanner, why do people choose a bridge to kiss each other? Why is the bridge so important?

  1. Well Nona I am not sure. It can be romantic. Or maybe there is a deeper meaning, in that a bridge represents two worlds coming together. or a crossing over to a new chapter. What do you think?

    1. It makes a good photograph for sure. About the explanation, I think it represents two worlds coming together. Isn't that purpose of the bridge? :)

  2. Your posts get us thinking... :)
    Last year when the supermoon happened, I didn't get to see it too well. It was a wild, stormy day, to add to that -- an earthquake was predicted for the fault-rich Bay Area.
    Didn't get to see the Supermoon? :(. Not even peeping out from the clouds?
    Is that part of the world in a celebratory mood with the new Prez and all?

    1. I got a peep if you say so. It was just the base of the moon. All that wait in vain. May be another day. Yes, you are right. It was the day when Hollande won! :)

  3. I guess in Europe any place is a good place to kiss. Having said that, I think a bridge is better than a dark alley!

    1. he he. A bridge is more respectable than a dark alley. But there are people who prefer a dark alley too. :)
