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

F258GWJ Arriva: One of my better digital Lynx's

I've been using Nikon Fotopix cameras since 2001 but I must admit I'm not proud of my digital pics which is why I don't bother to take so many bus views. A few turn out okay I suppose but at some time I ought to treat myself to something better but I'm afraid when it comes to bus photography I prefer to live in the past.. With these they are all either far too pixalated or they come out fogged in the same way as when negatives hadn't been bathed in fresh fixer. This Lynx came to Stevenson's from Wright  of Wrexham and looked reasonable in Arriva colours although these and other types would have looked better with an unpainted black grill instead.
