Even the most durable things have an expiration date. That’s a fact, whether we like it or not. And if you pay attention to your surroundings, you may be able to spot those little signs that time leaves behind when it does its thing. You may not be paying attention, but the world is continuously changing and thanks to cameras, we can now look at people’s images that remind us that time never stops.

1. “20 year difference — Over 30ft of growth.”

2. “My dad’s bibs from the early ’90s, next to my new pair.”

3. “We replaced my dad’s 16-year-old TV remote.”

4. “After four hard years, I finally got a new pair. Wore the leather out and wore the soles completely smooth.”

5. “Brand new Kenda wheelchair tires vs. 2-year-old tires replaced just in time for a blizzard.”

6. “This table tennis table”

7. “My granddad and his wheels, ~1950 & 2020.”

8. “My baking pans — 20-year-old, 3-year-old, and brand new.”

11. “My baby blankie. I’m 22 and can’t sleep without it.”

13. “The wooden floor exposed vs. under a wardrobe.”

15. “The spot where everyone stands in this elevator in Belgium.”

16. “Regular use for 25 years vs. mostly in storage.”

17. “Headphones worn daily since 2016 —about time to replace ear cushions.”

18. “Jacket I dyed two years ago. I never noticed how much it faded until I unfolded my sleeves.”

19. “Brand new vs. being slept with every night for 30 years.”

20. “The only progress photo that matters. My nearly 10-year-old leather belt has seen many phases of my life and many more to come.”
