21 Impressive Photos That Show How Fast Time Flies


Time flies. We tend to not notice how fast our kids grow, how our idols get older, or how old buildings get destroyed and new ones get constructed. Today we decided to compare the past and the present, and found out that things have both changed and stayed the same over many decades. We also found the girl from a famous meme “Side eyeing Chloe” in a very unusual place. You can find her in the bonus at the end of the article!

We at Bright Side offer you the chance to imagine that you are a time machine inventor and dive into nostalgia for a while.
