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

West Midlands SN66 WPB

One of the problems with bus photography is enthusiasts tend to choose the same most obvious spots and take similar views. There is nothing wrong with that and although the image quality might sometimes be slightly suspect I enjoy trying to take good pictures when I'm on the move from an oncoming bus. Not only do I get to take some familiar views which I wouldn't normally see in collections  like this fine Victorian cemetery on the West Midlands 529 route it's always a gamble whether they will be any good as the bus hit a bump or the shutter goes too late.

I too like taking photos of buses approaching from the opposite direction. I find that using the zoom helps to reduce/eliminate reflections and glare on the inside of the bus windscreen. Cropping also helps sometimes!

Thanks Julian, the best thing is it doesn't matter too much if a few turn out as duds when we have a digital camera.
