Dogs of the Wai

This here is my gorgeous pooch Niwa.  He is (I think) a ridgeback cross- not too sure really.  He is a very delightful dog.  

I have just begun the photography for an exhibition called ‘Dogs of the Wai’ (either Wairarapa- the region where I live, or wai- which is water in Te Reo).  

The region is filled with character-filled beautiful dogs.   I am capturing some of the joy they get out exploring the whenua (land).  

There are about 20 dogs so far (with an ever growing list).  Niwa will of course be the star of the show- he is fabulously photogenic- and I spend most time with him.  Here are a couple in preview- Niwa in action- in his favourite place (Wairarapa Moana) and with his favourite things- sticks.
