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

F105 YVP Leaside: Blood On The Tracks

This is a slightly strange photo I took. As usual I was hoping to get the girls in as an excuse to snap the very ugly Leaside Metrorider. I don't know if the driver was just too ashamed to be seen driving it as he pulled up as closer behind the transit in Whitehall than usual in traffic. He also seems to be waving his arms around in protest but I didn't notice anything too much at the time and at least the red is not my blood on te pavement. It might be flawed but here's another example of the way I managed to record those buses most wouldn't bother with which only goes to prove it pays to participate in two hobbies at the same time.

Not an ugly bus, very beautiful. The CVE Omni is ugly.
