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

Time for a hot milky 'OVO' as they call it in Switzerland

Horrid wet miserable winter days like this I feel are just as photographically exciting as sunny ones as they are full of texture and atmosphere. As you can see the local town bus operator in Sion makes good use of the empty space on it's Mercedes-Benz buses to sell advertising. Buying drinks and food from the mobile buffet can be rather dear in Switzerland, much better to go to the Station Cafe for something twice as big like a white frothy Ovomaltine.
