20+ Photos Showing What Time Looks Like

Time is an intricate thing. It behaves like a capricious creature who always is in a different mood. It stops, it runs, it changes things and people, but hardly changes feelings. 5 generations of women meeting together at the same place or an elderly couple getting married after 65 years are just some of the best scenarios life manages to write.

We at Bright Side have witnessed how time plays with people and objects and were so impressed with it, we couldn’t help but want to share these transformations with you.
