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

Sunshine, Smiles and Comfy Clarks Shoes

And what difference having a decent camera makes. No need to do anything else apart from reduce the size and put my name on it. Today I just see buses more like the chosen objects to build my photographs around which is not such a bad thing as having bias means we lose views we later regret as it is constantly changing on the street. I can't say I'm a huge fan of the way Travel West Midlands Dennis Trident Alexander 4606 has to carry National Express corporate livery, one which will only look worse once the freshly painted red fades to pink. It was taken in Wolverhampton on the old Midland Red 126 to Dudley and Birmingham.
