Hello and welcome to my new site. To those of you that may have popped in before - you may notice it looks a little different. This is because the Legacy SmugMug design is being retired in October, so all SmugMug users must tranfer to the new design.

This site is an attempt to bring some of my many Fotopic pictures back into the public domain and I will then integrate them amongst my latest photographs. Eventually, I hope to include a variety of galleries on all sorts of subjects, not just transport. Many of my photos have been taken in the North West of England, but I will gradually spread the site outwards from there.

The modern bus photo’s I add will be of fleets that I have a good number of shots from and, generally, they will be only vehicles that are currently owned [in service, reserve or withdrawn]. They may not necessarily be recent photo’s – they may even be with another operator if purchased second-hand.

The Stagecoach folder is divided into galleries based on fleet numbers and types. However, there are also galleries for my local areas of Cumbria & North Lancs, Manchester and Merseyside and South Lancs + Highlands. Again, there is only one photo of each vehicle and this may well have been taken when it was with another part of Stagecoach.

I am now starting to add some of my older photos that were in the Shooting the Past and Recollections series I had on Fotopic. Many of these are also to be found on Flickr, but I can sort and display them better on here.

Total number of photos on site as at 1 May 2016 is 54,549

Thanks for taking the time to look at the site. If you wish to get in touch, please email me at maljoe32@btinternet.com

===========================================================================================================================================================================================

20th November 2015

As of today the recent photos section further down the front page will be removed, for the time being, and replaced by a folder containing the latest additions. This will be sub-divided into the date the additions were made and then divided again into individual galleries. This, I hope, will make it easier to see which are the newest photos. About two weeks later they will be transferred across to their correct gallery. I have quite a few to add and, at the moment, I have the time to it - so expect quite a few!!

So, from today, all you need is this link to see the latest photos - Latest Photos.
