Photos by Barry Sigman
Local photographer Barry Sigman was out yesterday near the intersection of Highway 6 and Highway 90 in Sugar Land. It's normally swampy there, he says, but now it's become a desert full of apocalyptic imagery.

I think Sugarland has more to worry about that the current drought.... such as HOME INVASIONS!!!!!!!

I wouldn't ever call it swampy.  It was wet, but swampy?  No.

Did anyone consider that the water was drained for the baseball park they are building here?

Really? dead fish are your apocalypse?  This happens pretty much every couple of years there, the only reason there were some many fish is due to all the extra water we got this spring.

It's a catfish obviously, not a spooky mutant lifeform.  In fact they're ALL just dried fish heads and skeletons, not signs of the apocalypse.  Stop trying to over-sensationalize simple things to work over your readers.

yes, the shoe/eel/snake is indeed a catfish. ALSO, it's Sugar Land, not Sugarland.

I concur. Three of them are of dead fish. Lame!

These are beautiful shots but in an eery sense.  Once again, the Houston Press "gets it"; true depictions of real life in Houston.  What a dessicated wasteland!  I can feel the heat from these pics emanating out of my LCD screen---oh wait---no.  It's just the fan from the hard drive.  I always enjoy your top notch photos and captions.
