BUSWORLD PHOTOGRAPHY

I AM CHRISTOPHER LEACH THE ARTIST. I started this blog so that I can share with everyone my vast collection of transport photographs showing a personal and nostalgic view of the industry with images that span some 45 years taking in the U.K and some of Europe. I have no darkroom and so rather than being the perfectionist after tidying them up I upload the images warts and all, and even those that won't scan squarely or are scratched. In a way it adds age and character. You are all free to download these for your personal use but please remember I still own them and you are not just free to use them without prior permission for any knd of publishing. Click on images to enlarge them and if you want to see more leave your comments or visit my website for the mother-site with galleries including those Buses & Girls: PICTUREWORLD

Potsdam


After Reunification the former East Germany which had long been starved of investment cried out for modernisation, and as far as buses were concerned as well as buying new machines second-hand purchases played an important part too such as here at Potsdam where some Mercedes-Benz articulated buses helped replace the once ubiquitous Hungarian Ikarus.

Cityscape seems a good subject for murals. But many themes can of course be painted there, for decoration and as a break and escape from looking at cement. This painting by American painter Charles Sheeler, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8DP5GS, would make a good mural as it is as a good painting. The image can be seen as wahooart.com who supplies canvas prints from original art.
