There’s only one rule: no profanity. Have fun …. I’m throwing the gauntlet down NOW!
This image was shot on Swanston Street, during the Melbourne Cup parade in November 2008. Look carefully and you’ll see these band members are dressed in jockeys’ silks – and “riding” makeshift horses! You can even see one of the “horses” with blinkers.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/125 sec, ISO 200, focal length 68mm.
