"And with that he braved the rain to jump a Bondi Junction Train."

One of my favorite finds, ever. I did not notice the inscription until I downloaded it to my computer. Why didn't I look on the other side? What kind of strange, funny or sad story could have been behind the placement of this lock? Even more curious, what could lead to the trouble taken to inscribe it and paint it nail-polish red? Make up your own story, if you wish. (Later, mystery solved: it is part of an art project: HERE. Thanks for the link, Crits!)

Hi Diane!

Could maybe Peter124u give us some new piece of evidence? (But No!!! ...without a doubt whatsoever, I prefer to imagine!)

Best wishes from Barcelona to... the Antipodes now! Happy new year! ...all the best!

Diane MP on January 4, 2013

Interesting! The photos were taken in the King's Cross neighborhood of Sydney, and I had noticed while staying there that it was "arty." I'll bet Peter124u is one of the artists and either made these locks as an art project, or knows who made them. All of the handwriting on the red ones is the same. Thanks, Crits!!! :D

Right, the photo was taken in Barcelona's antipode, but I don't live there. Happy 2013 anyway! : )
