19 Photos That Show How Fast Time Flies
We often don’t notice how time passes unless it leaves a mark on something or someone. And sometimes, it seems that you can even touch the time and feel its power and inevitability.
At Bright Side, we decided to remind you and ourselves of how important it is to value every minute, and we chose some photos that really let you feel how fast time flies.
