Photo Friday – Befores and Afters

Don’t you just love before and after transformations? There’s something really magical about seeing things change. Becoming different but kind-of the same (and usually better than before).

I think it’s part of the appeal of reality TV shows like “The Block” (Prime 7.30pm weeknights). Apart from all the drama going on with the contestants, the fun part is seeing the transformation from wreck…  to room…

But sometimes things were better before:

Like before you lost somebody you loved…

Like the painting before the posing…

And sometimes before and after is just scary!!!
