It was four years ago today that I stood before friends and family and confessed my love and lifelong devotion to my beloved wife.
We’ve been together for a bit over five years (I wrote about our first date here). Although we are about to go on a fantastical journey, she has already taken me far beyond the borders I had when we first got together.
Today I am more comfortable in my own skin and more confident in who I am. She has challenged me to think and analyze where before I might not have. She has opened up so many doors for me. [Figuratively, of course :)] Thank you. I love you. I hope I have been able to bless you as much as you’ve blessed me.
Rhys Martin was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1981. In 2009, he sold everything he owned and left the country, living out of a backpack for ten months. He discovered a passion for photography while traveling throughout Southeast Asia and Europe.
After returning home, he looked at his home town and Oklahoma heritage with fresh eyes. When he began to explore his home state, Rhys turned his attention to historic Route 66. As he became familiar with the iconic highway, he began to truly appreciate Oklahoma’s place along the Mother Road. He has traveled all 2,400 miles of Route 66, from Chicago to Los Angeles. He has also driven many miles on rural Oklahoma highways to explore the fading Main Streets of our small towns. Rhys has a desire to find and share the unique qualities of the Sooner State with the rest of the world.
Cloudless Lens Photography has been featured in several publications including This Land, Route 66 Magazine, Nimrod Journal, Inbound Asia Magazine, The Oklahoman, and the Tulsa World. In 2018 he published his first book, Lost Restaurants of Tulsa.
Rhys loves to connect with people and share his experiences; ask him about enjoyable day trips from Tulsa, locations along Route 66, and good diners or burger joints along the way.
