Perspective is a wonderful thing. Sometimes you can only truly appreciate something by making all the random thing comparisons with slightly altered parameters, for example of location, age, or time.

These cool photos, compiled by the helpful folk here at Bored Panda, gives the wonderful gift of perspective by doing precisely that. Side-By-Side comparisons of everything from astonishing pictures of before and after in the autumn time to technological advances in street lighting and size comparisons of unexpected things make for a fascinatingly fresh look at things you may have taken for granted. Scroll down below to check these interesting things out for yourself, and gain a newfound appreciation for the changes (or lack thereof) in our everyday lives!

For those interested: google Bay of Fundy. The tidal hub can be up to 17 metres (some 55 feet). This is impressive.

White light is not a good idea, though. There are modern LED street lights that are bright enough for driving as they give a sharp view but do not bother wildlife so much.

If you have any doubt that birds aren't related to dinos, just spend some time watching turkeys---the bronze kind, not the genetically engineered white ones. My pet turkeys come running when I call, and when they run to me they look like raptors from JURASSIC PARK !

the room on the left has a light on inside though, you can tell by the shadow of the ceiling light. Either that or it has a second window.
