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

Avon Calling: Take Me Home DAF Berkhof
A busy 1990's scene with buses and tourists at Trafalgar Square in London but don't eat the hot dogs if you don't want to be ill. Of course they're not all bad but I once had a serious bout of food poisoning in my teens and there might still be a few unscrupulous unlicensed operators who sell out of date stock and who store their hot dog stands in filthy back yards where they get covered in very unhealthy pigeon droppings. To be frank, I'd rather go to a certain big American owned burger chain that might sue me if I criticise their products than do that.
