FSO - Happy Anniversary

Happy 4th Anniversary to FMTSO.  I hoped to make a special effort this week but it hasn't been the best week for me.  I've had no internet connection at home for days and yesterday I had minor surgery which has left me a little  worse for wear.
I'm now at my daughter's home in Auckland and just want to quickly say thank you, FMTSO for the fun I've had since I joined in June or July (can't remember which) 2009. Thanks to those who have encouraged me in my efforts to improve my photography and for the tutorials.
I appreciate that this forum has allowed me to share a little of what it is like to live in a rural community in New Zealand.

Happy Anniversary!


  1. It is because of your photos that I have fallen in love with New Zealand. Your photos and your commentary always make me feel happy.

    I also had some surgery earlier this week. I hope you are doing well.

  2. Hello Pauline,

    I have so enjoyed the 4 years of Green paddocks hills churches and grandies etc. Hope you are resting and recovering well.

    Happy days.

  3. FMTSO is certainly broadening all of our horizons... Letting us get familiar with many places we'd never otherwise get to visit. Hope you recover speedily from your surgery.

  4. first feel better soon.
    I have seen all of these photos, even though I haven't commented I follow you quite religously. love the countryside, and your photos. behave. hugs from Houston.

  5. I can't wait to see the Uppity Downity mountains again soon. Your photos are always a wonderful reminder of Northland.

  6. Week by week, I always look forward to your entry to see the beautiful New Zealand I once visited. Love their natural scenery so much. Being in a compact little island, there's no room for farm life or countryside, just more and more skyscrappers. FMTSO give me a chance to escape the town life I've lived all my life.

  7. I hope you are feeling better soon Pauline!

  8. Your homeland is just gorgeous.

  9. Hope you get over the surgery very quickly.
    I've always loved your crinkly mountains and the way they change with every view of tehm!

  10. Hi, all is going sound here and ofcourse every one is sharing facts,
    that's truly excellent, keep up writing.
