Interesting Photo of the Day: A Selfie Ten Years in the Making

That’s exactly what Arjun Hair, a 21-year-old photographer from British Columbia, did—he grabbed a silly photo of himself at 11 and spliced it with an identical one taken this year, now that he’s 21. The inspiration was quick and the process simple, he wrote on Reddit:

Or, as one Redditor corrected: “Ten years and 30 minutes.”
