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

Ribble & Winter Rain in Blackburn

For me bus photography is not just for sunny days I like all weather if I can take good pictures, and as far atmosphere is concerned there's nothing better than monochrome for the grainy qualities of bad weather. Typical of the Ribble buses to be seen in Blackburn during the NBC Eighties were Leyland Nationals of course but this was also a good place to find the low height ECW Bristol VR's.
