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

Glasgow belongs to me.....
.....and you can keep it!No it doesn't look great on a nice day but on a horrible cold wet winter day I would rather be somewhere else. But to be fair to Scotland's largest city the warmth of the people compensates and no doubt there will be one or two sore heads in the city from the New Year celebrations last night. A blue and cream Alexander bodied Daimler Fleetline of Midland Scottish heads out of the city for Gartcosh. This was one of those occasions when I was working and with a long journey ahead of me home I literally pulled up at the side of the road and took the odd photo here and there. Still fairly random views like this that are a bit fuzzy in my mind often have far appeal than those taken where buses usually gather in bus stations and at the garage.
