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

Colchester: Norfolk's of Nayland
When one visited special far off places little things like a downpour didn't usually put me off taking bus photographs so long as there was sufficient natural light. Standing under cover in Colchester Bus Station to keep the lense dry I somehow managed to capture a fairly reasonable view of a former Nottingham Northern Counties bodied Daimler Fleetline belonging to Norfolk's of Nayland. I have a feeling I stopped off in the town on my way to Harwich and then on to Denmark in 1979.
