Melbourne Cup
Posted By: xhanatos, 11-03-2009, 07:18 AM

Went for a quick street session, it was Melbourne Cup today (just like the Kentucky Derby or the Ascot..)

The photographers were out in force, snapping away at the drunk revellers. I was the only Pentaxian


Some just barely able to walk..


Stumbling around.. almost had a face plant.. (taken by the missus with the lumix lx3 - i'm the grinning idiot in the background)


This guy took a massive dive right infront of flinders st station, from the top of the stairs... and no, i didn't trip him!


An obligatory cute chick photo


and the other obligatory i-got-the-trifecta shot. Actually, dunno what he was on about. He was sure happy about something..


More tomfoolery (lx3)


Holy crap.. it's dennis hopper, in the flesh! (lx3)


Finally, on the way back home. a group of sober irishmen..???

Great series, I think there will be some sore heads today!
The trifecta shot and the last shot would be my picks - well done

oh, I miss cup day.
Always fun to sit outside Flinders street and watch the crowds roll (literally) off the trains...

Kind of a sad commentary on getting wasted.

Neat series. I was almost tempted to head up to Flemington and see what pics I could get in a similar vein from folk leaving the races and travelling by tram.
