thanks to your kind comment on one of my pictures I have the privilege of discovering your contributions to TE. This picture's significance is much enhanced by your fabulous note that goes with it. I now understand I have to read your book "Math and the Mona Lisa" ...
My best regards, Dietrich

j'aime beaucoup cette photo un peu mélancolique du Schwyberg. Je l'ai découvert par hasard en regardant tes images phantastiques de l'Afar.
J'habite aussi à Marly et je me bats pour empêcher la construction d'une installation industrielle sur --- le Schwyberg (www.sauvez-les-prealpes.ch).
Bien à toi, Dieter

Hi Mustafa, again,
wow, this picture is very important. It dispels many notions we may have about Afghanistan. It's not a picture of warriors nor of hooded women but of well clad persons showing their happy faces. And we also see that the Badakhstan people look quite different from, say, Hazara or people from Herat. What a pleasure to look at your gallery!
My best regards Dietrich

so you live here, niiiice ! My congratulations to your new camera. Your first shot is convincing, superb. While you are right to look for a DSLR, I had to go another way since I travel essentially with a bicycle. I am now the proud owner of a light, compact Sony RX-100 that does the most amazing things.
Thanks for posting this one!
best regards from equally rainy Switzerland, Dietrich

an interesting and funny picture. It seems that the Park administration helped our imagination a little.
What I always appreciate when in the US: the National and Regional Nature Parks have a strong educational mission, they want to explain things.
My best regards to you,

that is a highly original and very well composed view of the famous Sesah pol ! My compliments on this one. I like your work, Yass.
Best regards, Dietrich
PS: You asked me whether I would visit Iraq shortly. The answer is unfortunately no. I had the privilege to visit your country a year ago; I was able to see many places, from Arbil to Babil down to Basra and I enjoyed it a lot. But for foreigners and non-arab speaking people it is difficult to travel. Even getting a visa was quite complicated.
