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 Optare Spectra SP1 at Trafalgar Square

New buses for London routes are two-a-penny and no doubt most go unnoticed by the public but a bit like the Borismaster later these Optare Spectras looked just that bit different and enough to catch the eye. I always tend to think of here at Trafalgar Square or Piccadilly Circus to be the centre of London or maybe it's Parliament Square but buswise I think Victoria which acts like a transport hub could claim that honour. I thought this was fitting for the new month as the bus was number SP1.
