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

Leicester: On the way to Portsmouth
I love crowd scenes and lots of activity so I don't particularly mind and even quite welcome it if people get in the way of my buses. Express coach arrivals and departures are always good for a bit of low-key drama, but having said that I like to be able to remember which vehicle it was and this brand new United Counties W-Reg Leyland Leopard No.160 was worthy of a snap on two on it's own as it paused at Saint Margarets in Leicester on the long run down to Portsmouth on the South Coast.
