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

The Journey Home: Coach Stop in Victoria
I like getting people in my pictures and women give them an even broader appeal. Also of course the buses themselves are not always so interesting at the time and many of my best pictures were created as these kinds of little accidents. London of course is great for photography but even in Summer one has to worry about the growing shadows from tall buildings. On this occasion despite the approaching rush-hour I managed to find plenty of sunshine to capture one of Cricklewood's (W) Metrobuses T142.
