Those of you who know Indi best know she is fiercely competitive. Anytime someone says, “You can’t do this” or “I can do this better” she steps up and proves ’em wrong. Sometimes, this nature acts on it’s own without her knowledge. This can lead to unfortunate circumstances, such as the fact that a mere few weeks after I break two toes and sprain my wrist she twists and severely strains the ligaments in her ankle today whilst touring temples at Angkor Wat.
She’s fine, nothing is broken … but we’re resting for a few days. We have lots to type about and should get some substantial updates up soon. We gotta talk about the awesomeness that is Cambodia and the Angkor Wat temple complex and let you know what we thought of Thailand, too.
The good news is that Typhoon Ketsana floodwaters have receded in Siem Reap, so we aren’t wading to dinner anymore. And no effect from the earthquakes south of here. So far so good. Aside from the toes, and the ankle, and all that.
For now, I’ve uploaded a plethora of pictures to Flickr! and put my best up on Deviant Art and my Facebook Photography Page (different than our main Facebook Rhys and Indi Page…links below!) As always, comments and critique are welcome.
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.
