Since we all seem to like using instagram for its vintage looking effects, I thought today we take a look at some genuine retro & vintage summer shots. Skin, suntanning, games, laughter and love, get inspired to have a glorious summer! And if these don’t strike your fancy, take a look at Another’s list of Summer Shot. Enjoy!
