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

Shepherds Bush: A Pigeon-Eye-View

If you were a pigeon this is what you might have seen before having a very close shave or even being squashed by a bus. Indeed our disease-ridden feathered friends have to have their wits about them as they scavenge for bits or bread and other discarded rubbish. Once the cross city 73 route in London graced some of the best kept Routemasters from the long since closed Mortlake Garage but now in the low-floor age sadly Metrobuses and Titans are just a memory too. This view of Leeside's B299WUL M1299 was taken at either Shepherds Bush or nearby Hammersmith in the Nineties.
