We rarely pay attention to the way the time flies. However, if we take a closer look at the things that surround us, we can immediately see the changes. These internet users shared pictures that prove that nothing remains unchanged over time.

Bright Side suggests that you look at these 26 photographs that show the speed of time. At the end of the article, we prepared a bonus for you that shows that there is one thing that can stand the destructive test of time.

This is what 30 years of graffiti looks like.

The towel must have been weaved by Athena or Arachne, got lost, she couldn't find it, the Ancient Greeks found it and took it, millenia later, a museum found it and took it, amazed by how it's fine, a shopkeeper stole this, got amnesia, then someone who knew him told him everything and who he was, he forgot the value of the towel, and sold it for the price of a normal towel to the guy who photographed it. End of story.
