15 Photos That Showcase Time’s Ability to Change Everything

year ago

When we look at something frequently, it’s tough to see how much it’s changed since the very first time we laid eyes on it. Whether it’s an object or someone we hold dear in our hearts, time keeps transforming them until the difference is bigger than the resemblance. Fortunately, photography allows us to do comparisons that reveal fascinating before-and-afters.

Bright Side put together a compilation of nostalgic pics which prove that time is unforgiving yet tells wonderful stories.

“18 years of loving the most excellent kid.”

A father with his beloved girls 10 years ago and now

“My boy and I when he was a pup and then the bottom is from maybe 2 years ago. He’s 15 years old and going strong!”

“My mom found a cute rug at the store. Brought it home and it was the same one she had before.”

“Our first trip (2013) became the place where he proposed to me (2018).”

“18 years later”

“All these years and it’s still her favorite place.”

What a difference 3 years can make!

“My dad’s cat has been scratching the same leg of this bench for the past decade.”

There are only 15 months between these 2 photos but it looks like a whole lifetime.

“My mom’s phone from 1998 vs my phone from 2018”

“We met in second grade in 1997. Here we are 21 years later.”

“Our yearly reenactment of ’The Circle of Life’ on the anniversary of his adoption”

“My granddad and his wheels, circa 1950 and 2020”

22 years together and counting...
