Photographie Series the blue flame tour

In 2014 I went to Ireland for protest, permaculture and biogas. I stayed in Dublin, visited the ecoVillage "The Hollies" as well as the Cloughjordan ecoVillage and some other places. It was a very nice trip with a lot of lovely and friendly people. Totaly different from the time I lived in Ireland. I highly appreciated the help of Eimhin and his friends. TH Culhane later went to Ireland for another Blue Flame Tour, creating 10 diy biogas digesters.

They deserve better

When I walked with the protester I saw all the different people of different professions, origin, backgrounds, income, whatever - united.

The sun always shines on TV

5 days without TV and I'm convinced again that TV is another issue. It feels so free.

Point of views

Walking through the Hollies permaculture was again one of those moments when I felt near to nature and live.

Food for thought

When I walked through Dublin I had the one or other meal. As a vegeterian it seems like that I automatically eat good food.
