I enjoy taking photographs of people and scenery. Here are a few examples of scenic shots - primarily from Mexico, Medicine Lodge, KS, and the Coachella Valley.

 
These first four shots are taken pointing south and west of Desert Hot Springs, where there are hundreds of wind powered electric generators (commonly referred to as "windmills").

First Baptist Church in Sun City, Kansas - my parents Bob and Ruth Montgomery
were married in this church in June of 1947. I preached my first Sunday morning
sermons in this church in the summer of 1967. During the week I was working
on Bill Bollman's farm near Anthony between my first
 and second years of Bible School.

My mother's gravestone in Medicine Lodge, Kansas. Born in Medicine Lodge,
she attended Hays Teacher's College and taught for nine years before being called
 to the mission field. She met my Dad at Bible Baptist Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas.
 They planted a church in Terrell, TX where I was born, then served as missionaries
- in Jordan from 1950 - 1956, then in Pakistan from 1957 on. Pic taken 12/29/07
 
This is the gravestone of my mother's parents, Roy Terrance and Della Mae Phillips.
Both were born in Missouri. Della moved with her family to Kansas when she
 was only a few years old (six if I remember correctly). It took a month
to travel across the prairie by covered wagon to Barber County.
 

This is the gravestone of Grandma Della's parents,
Ann E. and Lewis A. Jester - my great grandparents,
who were born in Missouri. My other great-grandparents (Phillips) are also
buried in this cemetery. The Phillips family plot is the first one on your right
as you enter the central entrance to the cemetery off Highway 281.
