After briefly traveling through Kansas, we made our way through Oklahoma. The owners of the place we stopped at in Kansas told us about how the Rock Cafe in Stroud, Oklahoma, recently burned down, so we stopped there to get some photos of the remains:
Then we stopped by Catoosa to check out the giant blue whale. It was originally used as a diving platform, but the pond it is in is kind of rank and really can't be used safely for swimming, so now it's just a tourist attraction. That's Andy with his arms up on the tail fin diving platform:
We stopped in Tulsa on the first night in Oklahoma to visit and stay with fellow photographer John Lew. John and family were awesome, and we had a great time playing Guitar Hero (or trying to!) and Lego Star Wars. It's really sad when a 5 year old beats the adults at Guitar Hero! John took this photo of us as we left his place to head across the rest of the state:
Before leaving Tulsa, we visited the Oral Roberts University and took some photos of the giant praying hands:
Later on in the day we stopped at the Route 66 Museum in Clinton, Oklahoma. It was pretty neat to see everything divided by decade, and they had period music playing in each room. Below are a few photos of the old signs they salvaged from along the route:
So that about wraps up my film shots from Oklahoma. Next up: Texas!
