Pictures That Capture The Subtle Passing Of Time

Incredible | 6/3/20

I was talking with my parents the other day about my great-grandma and how I felt lucky to have met her before she passed away. She was 99 and had seen so much change in her lifetime.

But then I thought that I have, too. Everyone has, we just don’t always realize it until all that time has passed. We’re closer to 2050 than we are to 1970! It’s one of those crazy facts about time that makes it not seem real. When you look at these photos, you’ll realize just how much the world has changed in a seemingly short amount of time.

The Sun Can Completely Change How You Age

This person had been driving a delivery truck for 28 years. The side of their face that looks older was the side that always faced the sun. I better go get some sunscreen.

The UV rays from the sun can cause you to age more quickly. If this doesn’t convince you to put on sunscreen, I don’t know what will. This is pretty good evidence that UV rays aren’t good for the health of your skin.
