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

A Lancaster Tiger leaves Blackpool

Here's another one I had difficulty getting right because of the contrasting light. If one lightens the shadowy area beneath the bus station the background gets burnt out so here's a reasonable compromise. But better an action shot like this than the bus parked up somewhere, and it's an interesting bus as it was the only East Lancs Tiger in the Lancaster fleet. Seen in Blackpool bound for Morecambe when still quite new D154THG looked rather attractive in the rather cheerful blue and white colour
