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

London Central Leyland Titan at Trafalgar Square A929 SYE

It's so much easier these days with a digital camera as one doesn't have to worry about wasted shots but in the days when I used film it was a bit of a challenge going to somewhere like London where the possibilities of photography are endless but at the same time a lot more limited than one might expect. One of the biggest problems is often by the time one spotted something they liked it had gone. In the end I think I just wandered around and tried to record what I could and action shots like this Leyland Titan T929 might not be perfect but it certainly catches some of that rushing and summer heat as the traffic-lights change.

You got quite a rarity there, one of the few London Titans trialed with electronic route number and destination displays.

Thanks, a double-bonus shot and I didn't even know.
