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

Old MAN750 Chariots ready to do battle

In Britain we can find some fine interesting backdrops for our bus photographs but the Croatian city of Pula could provide us with a host of secondhand MAN750 buses posed on the huge bus parking area in front of the magnificent ruins of the Roman Arena in 1982.

When first looked at the photo I thought how on earth did they make enough space to park all those buses. When I went to Rome there was certainly nowhere to park in front of the Coliseum. Then I read your text to find that it wasn't Rome at all, which probably proves that when you've seen one ancient Roman Arena you've seen them all!

Knightrider, no doubt some of the youngsters race around and toot their horns they way the do in Rome, but still under the cloak of Communism sleep Pula was not a city with much of a parking problem.

During Communism (1970's and 1980's) one of the biggest problems was parking problem, especialy in the summer. Everyday articles in the local newspspers... Buses were almost empty in some periods... cars, cars...
