The passage of time takes its toll on all the things in life, be it landscapes, a city, people or objects. Beautifully capturing the force of change is the trend that’s got the Internet all swept up; ‘then and now’ photos shared by those that have lived them. These comparisons show the vast difference that can take place in short years, but decades or even centuries apart, and allow us to appreciate a more sentimental look into the past and thought on our present. We take you on a little field trip, to look at these amazing before/after images that tell the tales of evolution, movement and the inescapable time.
