This short video has no words in it, yet it speaks volumes and it serves as a great conversation starter. Father and filmmaker Frans Hofmeester took a 15 second clip of his daughter every week for 14 years. 📹 The result was this amazing time-lapse video that shows his daughter transformation from a newborn to teen in four minutes.
