Artist's name - Zoe. Fish's name - Glen.

Darwin is HOT right now...literally (yes journo friends, I mean that) and metaphorically in the way really cool stuff is hot.  If you have a vague feeling you might eventually make it to the 'top end', make it coincide with the Darwin Festival. The build up is threatening to begin but its not quite here.  Its an even 33 degrees and the sky is blue, albeit with a dull haze from burn offs.
I am not going to be able to throw myself completely into this festival, although I am already planning 2012.  I have been fortunate enough, however, to find a moment for quiet reflection over 100 years 100 portraits, and to find some unexpected relief by way of a cool breeze and sweet prints blowing in the wind.
Festival aside there is something else you need to know about Darwin: the street art is sensational!
