Fishing in a Louisiana Bayou - Photo - June 1940

in nature •  2 months ago

Two Cajun boys fishing in a bayou near Schriever, Louisiana, Terrebonne Parish, in June 1940. Terrebonne stands for "good earth" in French.

What's interesting about this photograph, other than it's subject of a simpler life in simpler ti​mes, is that the photograph looks like a painting.
