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

Recycled: BV52 OCM Travel Coventry.

I don't know if digital cameras wear out but my last Nikon Coolpix seemed to. None of them were that brilliant but this one produced images with a grey sheen a bit like those old darkroom negatives from stale developer. They got so bad I ended up giving the camera to my brother and now he feels wronged and feels I should pay to have it back! Anyway I'm slowly going through my files and trying to improve and save some of the best. This was taken a couple of years ago where there was a museum rally and open day at Harnell Lane Garage in Coventry. It was nice that National Express West Midlands gave the local fleet it's own livery which reminded me of Cambus. But I have to admit it was a bit insipid even from a decent lens. Anyway now I no longer need to use the camera, I'm tagging all these photos recycled then you won't blame me for the poor quality. lol
