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

Intimissimi in Florence
Going abroad on holiday all those new foreign words play games with your mind and after a few days this spelling of intimacy might not look right but it seems okay. Here is a less conventional view of the city of Firenze taken in December 2004 when I was exhibiting there in an art show. I'm not quite sure if I really like the green and orange ATAF Iveco buses but that orange was the colour all the town buses used to wear for many years in Italy so it must be progress.
