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

Buddens in Brugges

One of the highlights of a weekend coach trip to Amsterdam with some Michelin lads from Stoke was a stop on the return trip in Brugge. As usual unfortunately it coincided with a huge thundery rain storm so I didn't get many photos just my feet wet. However here is a local being questioned by the police as he was trying to steel some medieval 'balls and chain' hardware used to add to the historic ambiance and to keep cars off the grass. They wouldn't have lasted longer than a short Smethwick shower if that old transit with a blowing exhaust full of tinkers came along blowing it's recorded trumpet. "Officer, we thought like someone had left them out sort of thing".
