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

Dane Geld: The DAB Leyland
The Danes might not excel at skiing or mountain climbing but they gained a worldwide reputation for good modern design and I believe this extended to many of it's buses including smart looking DAB Leylands like this in the Greater Copenhagen HT fleet. When trying to find your bus don't try pronouncing the full title of HT Hovedstadsomradets Trafikselskab as by the time you've pronounced it correctly the bus will have long gone before you've finished the sentence. I'm not quite sure which actual bus this is but it's a BL5c and could be No.1038 dating from 1979 and allocated to the garage at Valby. This batch were favourites of mine.
