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

Manchester: A quick bite

One of the things about photographs is that they do lie for when they freeze a busy scene it can make it look rather tranquil and relaxed. I tend to try to tell it how it is and I like to get as much reality as possible into my shots and in this view you can almost hear the braking sounds, the hooting of impatient taxis and the roar of the passing traffic in central Manchester. This one is even more interesting as Bullocks who have been operating coaches since the 1920's a little while ago sold just about all of it's bus services and vehicles to Stagecoach including this 'cut-and-fold- look' Dennis trident bodied by East Lancs.
