Pictures That Show How Comparisons Can Change Perspectives

 It has long since been established that the best way to truly understand the magnitude of something is to have a point of reference. This logic applies quite firmly to nearly any situation, and photographs are the best way to effectively understand the differences in the world around us. These photos do exactly that. They put old and young, big and small, starting points and finishing points side by side so that we can get a clear comparison. See for yourself!
