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

Tributes to Diana and Tributes to Jim Berresford

Beautiful warm sunny spring weather greeted the POPS rally this year being held at The Britannia Stadium. Taken in Stone this looks like a planned shot but I was in fact sitting on another bus giving rides knowing that the preserved Alexander Y-Type Leopard wasn't far behind us and shooting a moment sooner or later and I would have lost it. Of course it is tempting to say that this scene brings back memories of the past but the truth is that some local preservationists are nuts about the long defunct Berresford and Stoniers and have built up a tribute fleet in their honour and to be truthful these gleaming buses are far smarter than the real things ever were.
