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

Oxford Bus Company
For some Oxford is a seat of learning, for others it's Inspector Morse, but for me like other historical and vistor orientated cities it's a great place to photograph some buses and girls together. I already had a shot of Northern-Counties bobied Daimler Fleetline No.424 but as it was the last proper looking former 'BET' City of Oxford bus I thought the girl made it a reasonable excuse to take another. Also running around that day was an Alexander bodied Fleetline on training duties.
