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

A Pleasant Afternoon in Heaton Park

No day out on the buses would be complete without some artistic Jowitt style buses and girls shots as I really enjoy this kind of atmospheric photography and especially when it gives a more truthful account of something that can be very artificial like assorted buses lined up on the grass trying to bring back the past. I think it's best to see them as a kind of transport carnival or meeting point and focus for old friends and try not to be too purist which I tended to do previously.
