1,200!

Last night I released my 1,200th finished photo from my Route 66 photography project—fittingly enough, it is one from the hotel we’ve stayed at more than any other during the journeying back and forth: the Munger Moss Motel.

#1,200!

It’s a nice round number, 1,200, but there are a few left from my last trip along the Mother Road, and God willing, more to come. My hope is to make it all the way to California within the next two years, thus wrapping up this particular undertaking—though no doubt I’ll hit Route 66 again and again. It’s such a great journey; I don’t think you could exhaust its wonders, joys, and laughs in a lifetime. Not even close.

Monday Escape: Tulsa’s Architectural Glamour!

Tulsa

During last year’s trip along Route 66, we set aside extra time to enjoy the beautiful architecture of Tulsa, Oklahoma. I was standing outside of this building—unfortunately, I’ve no idea of its name, so if you do know, I can’t tell you how much I would appreciate your filling me in!—taking pictures of this beautiful interior through the window. A very kind security guard popped open the door and invited me to shoot inside, and I’m ever so glad!
