Beached.

And I’m off to the beach! Got a stack of books and my vintage swimsuit all packed. I’ll be back at the end of next week; in the meantime, enjoy this gorgeous beach scene from the Kodachrome Culture exhibit at the National Geographic Museum here in DC. This one, taken in the 1950s at a beach in Etretat, France, has me psyched for the trip (check out the brunette with the red skirt and white top – so chic!). There are more wonderfully retro images here, all taken with incredibly gorgeous/saturated Kodachrome film, which was sadly discontinued recently by Kodak.
