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

Trying to squeeze one more image out of the film

I'm sure we've all tried it an found ourselves with half a negative. On this occasion in Leicester I got lucky as I shot thirty-seven or even thirty-eight. However there was a price to pay as there is a black hole in the picture where I pulled off the film from the cassette as I pulled it along. But I still like it as it's a fine view of one of that city's fine PD3 buses plus another Leyland a marshall bodied Leopard from the other local operator Midland Red. It was 1979 but despite the fine condition of twelve-year old MCW bodied Titan like it's sisters and the BMMO D9 it would sadly only last another year or so.
