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

Good friday in Burnley
I have some favourite April showers type contrasty black and white photos I took in Norwich in 1982 on Good Friday but it was only when doing some scanning this afternoon that I remembered I visited Burnley too in the Nineties on that same day. Not surprisingly with it being a Holiday there were not that many buses on the road so I was glad to see amongst the newer stock an elderly East-Lancs bodied Leyland Leopard nearing the end of it's days.
