Unhosted photos may be uploaded into the ACT Bus Gallery which will apply a watermark. Requests to remove the watermark will not be considered.

*This month we are seeking photos of construction of Light Rail line #. If you submit a photo (or two) meeting this criterion, you may post up to three photos but you may only submit a maximum of 2 photos of any particular location.

To ensure consistency, photos must be displayed with a width of 640 (or height if 640 if a "portrait" aspect) - photos wider than 640 are required to use the option width=640 or height=640 in the image tag. For example: [img width=640] instead of [img].

Double #doubledinosaur from me this month.   :D

963 lays over at Woden Bus Station with 967 at dusk.

967 lays over at Tuggeranong Bus Station with 971.

My attempts for a #tripledinosaur photo are still futile, apparently.  :'(
