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

JRV 500F: Heaton Park Trans Lancs Rally

What a difference a decent camera makes, Nikon are supposed to be pretty good but I never had really good results from my handy Cool Pix cameras. Of course it's easy to say I'm not interested in the modern bus scene but with decent images photography seems like fun again. Also of course it would have been a mortal sin to not get a good shot of this lovely former Byng's Duple Commander AEC Reliance JRV 500F now restored by Goodwin's Coaches and being followed by another of their AEC Reliance coaches a rare former Glenton example with centre entrance..
