0 to 100


'100' (from 0 to 100 years in 150 seconds) from Filmersblog on Vimeo.

I wanted to share with you guys this amazing video of people faces ranging from a few months old to a hundred years old....What I notice is that faces up to age 30+ is what I consider as "young"..after that the wrinkles start kicking in. Not all people are the same though, and everyone is different. And even though we can stay young at heart, the universe guarantees that everyone grow old. We get wiser (most of the time) and we make way for the new. We are like flowers, we start as a seed and eventually sprout up, mature into a full grown flower, sprout out a few seeds and eventually we will wither and die.

I'm turning 21 this year and in my mind, I have 10 years of "youth" left. The reality of wrinkles is horrifying to be honest. But the people in the video seem pretty smiley so I guess it wont be so bad when the time comes. The point is, youth is short. One way that I would like to preserve it is by taking as much photos as I possibly can, the memories and the faces. And another way is by taking care of myself so that when I'm old, I can continue to be healthy. And experience as much things as I can.
