I’m on holiday, traveling with my D7000, my SX-70, my Black Slim Devil, my Lubitel… oh, and of course my family.
Today the whole family went off to Australia Zoo. I am no fan of celebrity and spectacle, but by the time I had left the Zoo, I was felt pretty positive about Australia Zoo, the Irwins, the whole kit and kaboodle.
What I liked was that throughout the park and the events was a matter-of-fact, compassionate conservation message. This message was much stronger than the echoes of “Crikey” echoing through the park. Sure, I’m dubious abut the corporate marketing of “Bindi!!” (lots of Disneyesque typographical variations, every new attraction labelled “Bindi’s…”), but seeing her and her family in action you can’t help but admire how the schtick they must perform ad nauseum remains fresh sounding, and focused on an ethos of conservation.
So, without any further rabbitting, here are some photos from the Zoo:
