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

Smile: Rider LUA 320V in Leeds

The world has definately changed as in those days of the Eighties bemused bus drivers just used to scratch their head when photographed as you can see in this scene of a Yorkshire Metro Leyland National2 in Leeds. I don't seem to read so many nightmare stories of rabid driver throthing at the mouth hurling abuse at poor enthusiasts who just want to photograph that bus any more. Surely it must go on or is management starting to take a tougher line on public relations matters as we use the buses too.
