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

The day thanks to yours truly Valerie lost her records
Valerie went to Bristol to do a course and whilst she was there over the week-end I paid her a visit. On the Saturday we visited Clifton and did some shopping, but she went home early so that I could do some more photography. Really she should have taken the records she had bought that morning including Lou reed's Transformer with her because at this same spot I put them down for one Gardner revving mini-skirted second, turned around for one moment and they vanished. Some should have warned me, I never knew they had thieves in Bristol. Valerie wasn't happy and nor was I because I had a roll of film that I had taken in there too.
