Your new photos are very "Ydreikes" (Hydran).

Grossen Respekt vor Ihrer Kunst. Das sind die schoensten Griechenlandfotos, die ich je gesehen habe.

You have a talented photographic eye.
Bravo, and thanks for the reminder to pay more attention to our surroundings. Even here one can become accustomed to natural beauty.

Als Griechenland"kenner" (und Kameramann) habe ich mit großem Interesse - und wachsender Begeisterung - Ihre Fotografien "colours of greece" betrachtet - meinen Glückwunsch!
Besonders mag ich die unspektakulären, alltäglichen, nebensächlichen Dinge, die sie fotografiert haben: den Aschenbecher "mythos", den Lichtschalter, die abblätternden Farben...

I love the way Hartmut homes in on odd details that you would probably never notice for yourself, like the corner of a window frame, the door knockers, or a few tiles. It's a much more intimate representation of the island than you would get from panoramic shots, though there are some very atmospheric ones of those too.

What a lovely web site. The door knockers are beautiful. I loved the woodpecker door knocker. It makes you want to pack up shop and move to Greece. A beautiful country.
Paula Jenkins, UK


I'm not sure why, but the photographs of the doorknockers moved me to tears. I guess maybe the wonderment of all the wonderful people who reside behind those doors, and choose to live such a basic lifestyle on such a beautiful island. It caused me to want to wander the lanes and streets of Hydra, and just take it all in.
Your photos are absolutely beautiful! They are worth the time to peruse, and I love your thematic groupings.

Irgendeine gute Seele hat mir an diesem regnerischen grauen Novembertag Ihre Fotos geschickt, an denen ich mich erfreuen konnte und die mich in Gedanken in die Wärme "griechischer Gefilde" zurückgeführt haben. Ich bin über 20 Jahre lang nach Monemvasia gefahren, zu einer Zeit, als es am Ende der Welt lang und wir unter Freunden sagten, niemand dürfe zu Hause über diesen paradiesischen Ort sprechen, damit möglichst niemand - außer uns natürlich - dorthin kommen würde. Der Felsen ist ein Teil meines Lebens geworden und so manches Mal überfällt mich das Heimweh nach der tintigen Bläue des Meeres und der Stille des Nachmittags.
Sie haben in Ihren Fotos etwas davon eingefangen; von all dem, was Griechenland ausmacht. Schön, daß ich mir das Ensemble anschauen durfte.
