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

A Pretty Sight

You might call cyclists a pest especially the ones who think they own the road and who who are willing to thump anyone who gets in their way but they help keep my Halfords shares ticking upwards as do motorists of course. Shrewsbury is a mecca for these Arrive Optare Versa's but as long as it helps me get some pictures I don't mind what they are.

I find myself less concerned by cyclists misbehaving nowadays, despite their lunacy, instead being more worried by the antics of idiots in oversized 4x4s.
BMW seem to have fairly successfully cornered the market for said idiots by combining their earlier Pimpmobiles with Chelsea Tractors... :(

Yes they can do a lot more harm if they hit you in one of those too, they just need more police on the roads to bring the cowboys to book.
