Summertime in Gremi / Sommer in Gremi


North Germany is cold, rainy, windy - (almost) no sign of spring yet.
This picture of Gremi (province of Kakheti) gives a little warmth. It was shot in July 2005 and - yes, it was hot there!

Oh, by the way: Thanks for visiting caucasus-pictures. There´ve been more than 7000 visitors by now!

Selling sunflower-seeds


Seen near Marneuli in 1997 - a picture of poverty. Pensioneers received 12 Lari a month which was about 12 German marks. That was hardly "enough" to buy one loaf of bread a day.
In 2007, pensioneers get around 50 Lari. Still by far not enough to live a decent life.

Old cinema, Telavi / Altes Kino, Telavi

Der Vorraum des alten Kinos wurde in den letzten Jahren durch eine Ballett-Schule genutzt. Nun soll daraus wieder ein Kino werden - so der letzte Stand meiner Informationen. Meine Freunde Gotscha und Ulrich planten schon, da hörten wir, dass das Gebäude verkauft ist.
Hier ein paar Aufnahmen vom Sommer 2005. Wie man sieht, ist es ziemlich verwahrlost, bietet aber unter denkmalpflegerischer Hinsicht viel Erhaltenswertes. Und wo findet man noch dieses Ambiente eines alten Lichtspielhauses?

Die Bilder vom Inneren wurden übrigens mit ISO 3600 gemacht. Ich bitte die Qualität zu entschuldigen.


The entrance-hall of the old cinema was used by a ballet-school during the last years. Now it´s going to become a cinema again (as far as I´m informed). My friends Gotscha and Ulrich already made plans, when we heard the building was sold. These are pictures of 2005. As you can see, the building is in a bad shape, but a lot of original elements were preserved. And where else can you still find this athmosphere of an old cinematograph?

Note that the photos from the inside were shot with ISO 3600 - so please excuse the quality.
