Marty’s photo of the day #3168: I didn’t do well when this sea lion gave me a swimming lesson. I totally failed on the swimming upside-down while holding my breath for more than ten minutes part. (Photographed in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico)
Marty’s photo of the day #3162: I shot this cactus close-up on the Baja Peninsula in Mexico.
Marty’s photo of the day #3150: Just sittin’ on the floor of the Sea of Cortez, with a very mellow octopus on my feet. Oh, did she fall asleep? (Photographed in Mexico)
Marty’s photo of the day #3147: I debated cropping this black-crowned night heron photo, but I like the mountains in the background. To me, it gives the viewer more of a sense of flight. (Photographed in Mexico)
Marty’s photo of the day #3121: Everyone knows that Donald Trump loves having things named after him. Therefore, I propose that Mexico name this geological feature after him. The rocks you see are white, because they are covered with bird guano. What could be more fitting than naming a mountain of shit after the shittiest […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2963: This raven photo is from a few years ago, during one of my early morning hikes, on the Baja Peninsula of Mexico.
Marty’s photo of the day #2901: While both videos and pictures have their place, if I had to choose, I’d go with the latter. A single photo can bring back so many memories—so many emotions! This is a photo I took from the yurt Deb and I rented along the Sea of Cortez in Mexico […]
When I published Time Is Irreverent, conservative Christian Republicans were furious with how I depicted them. Hell, I even suggested that the theocracy coming out of the reign of “President Handley” would advocate shooting brown people crossing the border from Mexico. Then, last night, while Donald Trump was whining at a rally about brown people […]
Marty’s photos of the day #2762: This is an American oystercatcher. One of the many stunning bird species I photographed along the Sea of Cortez in Mexico.
For the next week, Deb is on a huge cruise ship, heading for Mexico, and I’m home alone. My wife, being the big weaver-lebrity she is, is one of the featured speakers/teachers on a “Weaving at Sea Cruise.” She invited me to come along, but being on a ship with two thousand other people just […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2710: Cactus wren nest, photographed in Mexico.
Marty’s photo of the day #2693: This turkey vulture was perched on a tall cactus, located on the Baja Peninsula of Mexico. Over approximately twenty minutes, I stealthily approached to get close enough for this shot.
Marty’s photo of the day #2660: The Three Amigos. (Royal terns, photographed along the Sea of Cortez, in Mexico)
Marty’s photo of the day #2659: Brown pelicans along he Sea of Cortez (Mexico).
Marty’s photo of the day #2588: This is a Pacific loon, photographed on a stream that was just about to dump into Mexico’s Sea of Cortez.
Marty’s photo of the day #2514: Birds in flight shots always fascinate me. Obviously, this gull’s mate was not nearly as impressed with the landing as I was. (Photographed in Mexico.)
Marty’s photo of the day #2499: I photographed this blue-footed booby on a tiny island in the Sea of Cortez. This was the only blue-footed booby I saw the entire time I was in Mexico. I would have been so pissed if she wasn’t in focus.
Marty’s photo of the day #2363: Aah! Another beautiful day on the Sea of Cortez, in Mexico. Just let me sleep.
Marty’s photo of the day #2356: I apologize to Martyman fans. I’m well-aware that he’s been missing from my posts for well over a month. I’ve been so busy putting the final touches on my new book, “Time Is Irreverent,” that I just haven’t had a spare moment to set up any shots. In fact, […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2142: The rare and endangered cactus-climbing starfish was, perhaps, my best find last year while hiking on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula. Very few people ever get the chance to see this unusual animal in the wild, as they’re quite shy. Also, as a photographer, I had to approach with caution. Spooking […]
