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

Ribble Atlantean at Morecambe

One thing I hate about Britain is our overbearing health and safety culture, indeed close to where I live there's a footpath which has been closed off because someone deemed the willow trees along the route to be a dangerous. Maybe if there is a genuine risk they could put a warning notice up about not going in windy conditions but I think people should be able to decide for themselves whether they are about to be killed or not by a falling branch. What I like about this photo taken at Morecambe of a preserved Ribble ECW bodied Leyland Atantean AN68 is there are no plastic cones or temporary purple railings not even a high-viz vest.
