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

H140 GVM: Sunlight & Shadows in Manchester

Too much sunlight and too much shade. Sometimes we try to do too much with our shots but photography should be fun and standing where I was neither of the subjects  were accessible enough to justify a negative by them self. But as I tend to look at it, if I hadn't photographed one I wouldn't have got the other adding a random unplanned elements to my portfolio and a lot more besides. I rather liked these GM Buses  Northern Counties bodied Dominators when they were sparkly new and the slim young lady brings a bit of contrast and life to those deep shadows.
