Photography 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. 

just the coffee - more protest against the current systems

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

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.

Ruhrpott Part One - a new city

Over 8 years I took a lot of photos. I started with a Canon 60D and then switched to a Sony Nex 7. Those bulky and heavy DSLRs are like dinosaurs…
