Going Fishing, Texas, 1952

As we head into the first "official" summer weekend, we thought of sharing this photograph by Life magazine photographer John Dominis: "Going Fishing, Texas, 1952".

The photograph was taken on assignment for a Life magazine story about the "Mesquite problem" throughout Texas. John Dominis covered a lot of territory for this assignment, but did not indicate where he shot each picture. The story was published in LIFE on August 8, 1952, although this picture was not used in the story. The fishing pools are made from area Mesquite
