Melbourne zoo is in two parts, one of which is a fair way out of town (Healesville) and focuses on Australia’s impressively weird native fauna, and the other a more traditional zoo near the city. This has lions and tigers and gorillas and such, all very nicely housed in large and modern enclosures, participating in world conservation breeding programmes, and educating everyone to heck about the critters. This holiday, it was the town zoo’s turn. A pleasant way to spend an afternoon, although since it is mid winter at the mo’, many of the more tropically inclined creatures were huddling in warm corners under blankets.

A while back I ran away from a twentymumble-year corporate career to be a feckless art student. Since then I've dirtied my hands with, metaphorically and/or literally, bronze and ceramic sculpture, photography, and digital and traditional illustration. Mask making was one discovery, dovetailing with my interests in teaching and performing improvised theatre. View all posts by alittleart
