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

Hidden Gems!

I don't let things like a fence in the way spoil my shot if it's the only way I can do it, the secret being to be honest and make it part of the composition. Actually I always wanted a picture of the rare East Lancs bodied Leopard coaches of Halton too but on this occasion not only was there this fence in the way it was even worse as there were bushes too so I had to settle for this beauty instead. One afternoon I saw one parked outside Tillington Hall Hotel in Stafford but this dummy didn't have his camera. The Leyland PD2 Playbus once belonged to Liverpool Corporation.
