Marty’s photo of the day #4075: I write both fiction and nonfiction.

Marty’s photo of the day #4070: I photographed this frog in the Amazon rainforest of Peru. Identifying this frog has been troublesome. I found a few matches on the internet, captioned as a “harlequin frog,” so that’s what I’m going to call it. If the ID is correct, this is a variety of poison dart […]
Marty’s photo of the day #4069: As part of my routine to tell aging to “fuck off,” I go on a bike ride each morning that takes me up and down a steep mountain dirt road. I even do it in the winter, with studded tires. I always carry my camera with me on those […]
Marty’s photo of the day #4068: Can an entire canoe fit sideways into a hippo’s mouth? I took this photo in Zimbabwe shortly after my wife, Deb, and I proved—yes, it most definitely can!

Marty’s photo of the day #4066: When Deb and I were in Venice, Italy in late 2018, I got to play reporter’s photographer at the Luigi Becilacqua workshop.

Marty’s photo of the day #4065: In celebration of President Biden signing the Inflation Reduction Act today, I dug up this photo of Deb and me at a Jon Tester campaign rally in 2018. Deb and I have known Senator Tester for years, and he campaigned with Deb when she ran for the Montana State […]

Marty’s photo of the day #4057: In a few weeks, Deb (wife), Nellie (dog), and I (Nellie’s plaything) will be returning to Montana’s American Prairie (formerly the American Prairie Reserve). Last year’s visit was too brief, so we’re going to stay longer this time. There’s so much to explore! This photo is from last year—the […]
