Ripples form slow as syrup on the murky bayou surface. Still like static drops in time the heavy water holds onto stories. It clings to a past.

Everything moves slower in the humid swamps of southeast Texas. Even a boat’s wake comes to a near standstill. Intrigued by the slow, hypnotizing roils on the mirrored black surface, our roaming photographer captured the image outside Orange, just an alligator length from the marshy Louisiana border.

The environment presents a challenge to those wanting to change things. The watery world warps and wraps the surrounding landscape into distorted shapes. Making its own history, its own truth, to hold onto. Like a looping, watery fortune, it allows a glimpse of the future through a murky, mirrored past.
