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

It's OKay: OK Travel in Newcastle
Black and white photography is much more suitable than colour for poor weather conditions like this, just so as long as there is enough available light. Instead of producing dreary pale images one can do something with the views to catch the mood. It really does look miserable in Newcastle on Tyne and only the sight again of old favourites including OK Travel with a Leyland Tiger that lift the spirit enough to wish we were there.
