Pictures of items worn down over the years provide poignant illustrations of the passage of time. On a natural level, eroding geological formations demonstrate how the Earth changes; more personally, before-and-after photos of worn-down objects remind viewers that nothing is permanent. Age comes before physical beauty in the majority of these photos, but that doesn't make them any less alluring to the eye.
