Photographs are meant to capture the beauty of the moment it was clicked and allow us to cherish the moment again and again in the coming future.
Today's beautiful moments are tomorrow's beautiful memories. And photography is an amazing way to contain the freshness of the moments forever. This father here thought of a wonderful idea of taking a photo of him and his son every year. The heart touching father-son series defines it quite well how time passes so quickly.
This series of photographs shows how a young family grows older and how a man faces transforms with time. This father continued capturing photos with his son for 30 years and see what happened at the end.
It often happens that time goes unnoticed and suddenly we feel that all has changed too quickly. It feels as if everything changed in an instance. On the inside, we do know that it isn't the case, and you'll see no drastic change in the father-son photographs as the years pass by but minor changes occurring.
The compilation goes till the year 2015 and that is when you realize how everything changes with age.
The smiling father...
...and the kid with a scared look staring in the lens of camera.
Yes, it does dishearten a person when his kid does not smile when he should.
The former isn't the same when the son grew a year older.
Gradually, he started to grin.
A mix of emotions in this one.
It seems as if the father-son weren't happy in the years 1993 and 1994.
You'll see the smiles back in the next photograph.
Did you notice, the kid is now seen wearing underpants.
The intimacy level between the two started to grow.
The way both of them are seen comfortable in their own skin tells us exactly how rich these two must feel today while going through these pictures again.
A major change came in their relationship when the son started to pose for the photograph instead of being in his father's arms.
A belt is an essential part of a man's wardrobe and this image shows how both of them flaunt their belts. Though there's another surprise for you in the next photograph.
A dog becomes a part of the past shared by the two.
And, as the years went by, the father-son relationship turned into more of a brotherhood in the ways they posed for the photograph.
There is a kind of pride seen in the eyes of the father.
Whichever year that may be, but from the year 2000, it was clearly visible the kind of strength their bond carried.
They weren't short of any killer looks too.
And, with time, they improved on their fierce looks.
The son started wearing an accessory around his neck.
Though, it appears that he wasn't a great fan of accessorising when in the next year we don't see that accessory anymore.
From 2008, a major change was observed.
The son looked more protective of his father, clear from the way they got their picture clicked. Son had now started to hug his father.
And, in a couple years, he had become the more influential person in the photograph.
It was clear from the way he hugged him and the gestures clearly reflected how protective he was.
If at last something was left, then he even picked up his father just the way he used to to.
Share the story if it made you smile.
