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

Bitterfeld: Don't be afraid to look

I suppose once the Iron Curtain fell tour operators could have made a nice little depressing itinerary of environmental disaster areas for outraged citizens to come and snap instead of the more usual sunsets and churches, one of these being a completely dead silver coated lake beside a former East German colour film factory at Bitterfeld. As one party hovers along the edge of it using more film the driver of the chunky looking MAN coach takes a short nap.
