18 Before and After Photos That Show the Power of Time

year ago

Photography is one of the best inventions in all of humanity. It’s a peculiar time machine that helps us to go back in time to recall the best moments of our pasts, or to follow the progress and inevitability of our changes. But the best comparisons can be made when you put before and after photos side by side.

At Bright Side, we enjoy looking at photos taken at different times and comparing them. And we’d like to share this pleasure with you!
