35 Photos That Show The Effects Of The Passing Of Time

22

Time has an effect on everyone and anything. Buildings can start to crumble and wood will lose its shine, toys can be broken, and objects can wear thin. What stays is our memories and our special moments. As we get older, almost anything material changes. Not only that, but we age, too. Our faces become wrinkly, and our bodies lose elasticity. Time eventually wears everything out. Sometimes it takes weeks or months, it can take years or decades, but it will happen. Often times, however, we don’t have the ability to notice the passing of the time and its effect on us.

Here are a few examples that show the fascinating effects of time, although we rarely notice them.
