These 20+ Before And After Pictures Show How The World Has Changed Over Time

We live in a world that has changed rapidly over the years. Things are changing faster than ever before. Now, It is almost hard to imagine life with just a cord dependent telephone. We all depend too much on the Internet, on our phones and cable TV. As humans, we are amazed by history and by those before and after photographies who have a potential of telling fascinating stories. For all those people who are feeling curious, and want to see the changes a place has endured over the years there is a website called re.photos where you can explore historical images and their up-to-date counterpart. The whole process is called re-photography which means the act of taking a photo of a scene that has already been photographed some time ago.

You can browse the database according to various search criteria and view a picture pair with an animated transition. If you want, there is even an option for you to contribute by uploading your own re-photographies, and it can be both buildings and people. It’s a pretty exciting and amazing idea, especially for history lovers. Have you ever wondered how the Eiffel Tower in Paris, looked hundred years ago?
