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

Mercedes-Benz 1559 stripped ready for scrap

Close to the large BVG Indra Gandhi Str depot in the old East Berlin used to be a bus compound where redundant buses were stripped or stored prior to sale. One the first occasion I came the bearded guy in the mobile hut was friendly relaxed and let me wander around taking photos, but the next time it wasn't interesting enough to go inside so I just took one photo from outside the gates and the same caretaker came running out almost foaming at the mouth like a rabid dogs shouting and waving his fists at me. The next time it was closed and empty.
