23 Unbelievable Instances Where Things Got Worn Down Over Time

Time and gravity usually wear down everything. There’s nothing that’s going to last you forever. Everything eventually breaks down and wears down and all the images in this gallery are evidence of that. From cuddly old teddy bears to cars, buildings, coins, human skin damaged from the sun, floors, and people, nothing can withstand the test of time.

Although it’s a little sad to think about, the process is actually fascinating when captured in photos.
