63/365 – Souvenirs, souvenirs

63/365 - Souvenirs, souvenirs

A picture postcard
A folded stub
A program of the play
File away your photographs
Of your holiday
And your mementos
Will turn to dust
But that’s the price you pay
For every year’s a souvenir
That slowly fades away
Every year’s a souvenir
That slowly fades away
-Billy Joel-

The charm of vintage biscuit tins… After you’ve emptied it from its original content you can fill it with various items and keepsakes… only to forget about it for a while. Until the day you feel very brave and decide to dust and sort your drawers and closets. You dig out the tin box, open it, squat on the floor… and off you go for a time travel…
That’s the idea of this cool website, Biscuit Tin. Check it out and rediscover your own photos stored on Flickr, and, most all, the story behind them.
