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

Trying to Contain Myself with Excitement in Kirby

Oh dear I'm trying not to say I quite like the look of those Stagecoach stripes on this Alexander bodied MAN seen last week at Kirby where a few classic buses gathered in a world of featureless roads, iron railings and shipping containers. The later Stagecoach livery is better of course, but whereas Barbi was a bit dull it was nicely designed whereas the new one is all wishy-washy like a plate of mixed up fruit yogurt  and thin and dare I say it I think this is a bit better. As for Arriva It's about time it got a new livery too, anything except that vile aquamarine please which affects me as I have mild colour blindness making the blue turn a horrid green. Well at least the bus will feel at home here on Merseyside having operated with Stagecoach in Kington upon Hull
