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

Blundel Group AEC Reliance in Wigan: What happened next?
I haven't had many bad experiences when out taking bus pictures but this was the first time I ever had a problem in the street and this driver even stopped his coach belonging to Smiths Happiway Spencer AEC Reliance Coach to challenge me. Unfortunately he had a complex because of a hair-lip but like most drivers he shouldn't worry too much as glass reflexions and shadows make it difficult to see whose driving anyway. I think I explained this and he drove off but it just proves you can't take anything for granted.
