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

Mercedes Town Bus in Lubeck
It's difficult to take a view of buses in service without street furniture getting in the way so just imagine how difficult it must be for film-makers to both get permission to film for short periods and to hide or even dismantle road signs etc...Fortunately I like everything as it is but more of a problem for Myself on this occasion in Lubeck was holding that camera horizontal. Maybe it was because I only had a few moments to press the shutter. Of course I could straighten the print on the scanner but I would lose some of the picture especially the church steeple.
