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

Havel Bus P-AV-945

Not surprisingly in the old East Germany they were suspicious of cameras, especially the older folk but I never had any problems. Reunification meant the writing was on the wall for the ubiquitous Ikarus fleet and they were quickly replaced by buses like this typical MAN artic. One thing we Brits have to get used to is the well used cycle lanes where people feel safe enough to travel with a helmet.
