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

Chester: A Merry Dance

When I was doing a lot of serious black and white photography in the Eighties I tried to do plenty of the more interesting creative type of bus photography as opposed to the standard record shot which enthusiasts snap. The City of Chester offered plenty of interesting features and good vantage points including this vista taken from the historic walls and I almost caught the two Crosville Leyland Nationals and Corporation No.59 a Northern Counties bodied Daimler Fleetline exactly in line as they turned their respective corners.
