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

Bus Photography Inside the Berlin Wall

East Germany might have been a Police State but when taking bus photography inside East Berlin I never felt like a criminal or suffered any abuse which is more than be said for our lovely U.K. In this view of the bus terminus at S-Bahn Pankow there were plenty of large Ikarus articulated buses to be seen but as usual not a lot of people going anywhere.

omnibBut other than tourist spots, you *did* have to be careful what you took in East Germany. I think life was a little more relaxed in East Berlin than the rest of that country. Perhaps East Berlin was something of a "shop window".
