Normally, the purpose of time-lapse photography is to speed up time to see things such as a flower opening, the passing of clouds, the construction of a structure, etc. Photos are taken usually with the help of an intervalometer set to predetermined intervals. The intervals may be seconds, minutes, days or even months, depending on the purpose.

The below images set a new record for time-lapse photography. The first image was taken in 1939, my then six year old sister holding the newborn yours truly. During a recent visit our sense of humor got the best of us, so we decided to re-enact the scene.... and that's some time-lapse.

Mouse over the image to see the carnage caused by the intervening 67 years.
