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

"ENG-ER-LAND, Come on You Eng-er-land"

Vicky and I went on a shopping spree in Chester; or rather she did. I hoped to get some decent trademark bus photos in the winter sunshine lit steets but just my luck the town was closed to traffic because of extensive roadworks and a visit by Mrs. Wales, Kate Middleton no less. But buses have their celebrities too if one wants to include the FA England Team Coach, a Scania which looks like it belongs to Guideline. As you can see this sort of slate grey is the 'cool' colour to use at the moment as it appears on a number of new buses.
