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

Crosville Bristol VR at Woodside

To make an understatement, usually when we photograph buses the background is pretty mundane or even boring But you can't get a much better view than this taken at the Woodside bus and ferry terminus in Birkenhead with Liverpool's Liver Building basking on the far side of the Mersey like a reminiscent Maharajah. By this time in about 1982 my faithful German Voitlander camera was starting to scratch the negatives, but because of it's pleasing composition and interest this view just about qualifies for the favourite tag, I hope you will agree.
