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

Alton Bus Running Day: The Pursuit of Pleasure

Yes I seem to be in a nice place at the moment I even like Leyland Nationals enough these days to steal the odd photo, besides I had a very pleasant ride on this one a former Hants and Dorset bus from Alton to Odiham no doubt helped by it's fabric dual purpose seating instead of Seventies sticky plastic. These buses certainly had a character all of their own the only trouble was not only did the NBC ones all look the same there were just too many of the critters. The D/P version was a bit more unusual though especially in red and looked a lot better. We all grumble about the British weather but it's the perfect place to be on a beautiful summer's day.
