I’m updating this blog while sitting on the beach in Mexico. But I’ll get to that.

Yesterday had a fantastic vibe; Brad, Doug, and I sat outside for hours and chat with some beers. We drove to Anaheim last night and saw The Faint in concert at the Grove. Ladytron opened for them. Try as I might, I didn’t like either act. I’ve seen The Faint in Tulsa before, and although all of the elements are there I just don’t mesh properly. But anyway, the girls had a great time dancing and Brad and I had some good conversation time.

Afterwards, we drove to North Hollywood to visit with Dave Mast and his wife Miriam. Dave is the lead in Echocast (one of Brad’s bands) and we met him briefly before. A great couple of people that opened their homes to us. Everyone else stayed up to play rock band, I slept. I guess I’m a downer. I was tired!

We got up at about 10 and had some breakfast burritos, which were spectacular. We had some more quality visiting time with D & M before heading back to Doug’s…for an impromptu drive down to La Mansion in Mexcio, where he has a house ON the beach. Which is where I am.

Which means I’m done typing for a bit. Pictures to follow!

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.
