(CNN) -- [Updated 3:30 p.m. Monday, January 7] The Pont des Arts in Paris is a pedestrian bridge that links the Louvre to the Institut de France, which is seen here in the distance.

The bridge sits over the Seine River and offers a fantastic view of the Paris skyline. It is also known for the love locks that people leave on its fence. Couples will often write their initials or names on the locks, attach them to the bridge and then throw the keys overboard to symbolize forever love.

A couple of years ago, many of the locks were removed. But they've now built up again to the level pictured here.

Congrats to reader "Tomirvin" for being the first to answer correctly! Many of you answered the Hohenzollern Bridge in Germany, which also has a bunch of love padlocks. There are also similar bridges in other countries.

[Original post] Do you know where this photo was taken?

If you think you know the answer -- or if you just want to take a wild guess -- post it in the comments area below. Later in the day, we'll reveal where the photo was taken and give credit to those who figured it out first. (The more detail, the better!)

Each Monday morning, we'll post a new photo and challenge you to tell us its origin. The photo might be related to a prominent news story or theme -- or it might just be something that caught our eye.

Good luck!
