Time has a funny way of changing things. If you’ve ever looked at old clothes and wondered why they all look faded, it probably wasn’t the style — they just lost their color over time. A lot of objects change and break in some pretty surprising ways once enough time has passed.
We at votreART have to admit that we’re all slaves to time and we’ve got the photos to prove it. Don’t forget to check out our bonus feature that shows how the passage of time can be a beautiful thing.
