People change, they grow up, and life goes on. Innocence is such a huge part of childhood, and once we go through that rite of passage, innocence is gone forever.

We all have those silly pictures in our house from when we were smaller, and looking at them reminds us of those good times from our past. Have you ever thought of re-creating these pictures in present time? Well thesepeople did, and the results are hilarious.
Now looking through these then and now pictures, I couldn’t help but realize the “realness” of each one. You can literally see the aging in all of the faces, which makes these people seem so much more genuine and authentic. I really like the “Bat Men” comparison (number 8). If you look in the back, the same chair is behind the two boys. Also the fact that two grown men are dressed up in Batman costumes is kind of funny.
