Pictures show you what difference a certain amount of time makes

Extraordinary photos reveal how people, places and animals are transformed by the passage of time – including a Brazilian wasteland where tree saplings flourished into a forest

  • People from all over have shared pictures that capture the passing of time 
  • One photo shows a flourishing forest on what was wasteland 18 years before 
  • Another shows how an enormous ocean sunfish is born the size of a grain of rice  

These extraordinary before and after photos reveal how people, places and animals are all transformed by the passing of time. 

The photos, taken around the world, were shared on social media and collated in a gallery by Bored Panda

Among the most striking examples is a deserted wasteland in Brazil that is unrecognisable 18 years later after the landowners planted saplings that flourished into a lush forest. 

Another image shows an elderly woman riding a motorbike in the exact same spot she visited as a schoolgirl.  

This striking comparison shows a flourishing forest on the site of what was deserted wasteland in Brazil, after the owners of the land decided to plant trees 30 years before
