Pet Portraits at Kawakawa Bay

2 Dogs and a cat called Kebab

First off, the weather was so beautiful. I just love days like this – amazing light. Drizzly and grey. The water’s edge merged almost seamlessly into the sky. Look…

Nearly horizon-less. Gorgeous.

The trip took a couple of hours and after driving for ages I came across this cool old housebus. It was the only thing on the roadside for miles.

I also saw a dead cow lying in the shallows of the ocean. No idea what happened there but she clearly wasn’t having a good day at the beach.  I should’ve got a photo really. (Would that be macabre? I could have made it tasteful, I’m sure).

But enough of all that.

Here’s Max. Isn’t he gorgeous?! He was happily relaxing in front of the fire when I arrived and was only mildly interested in receiving visitors. I was transfixed by his beautiful colouring. Get a load of those feet!

After a few shots at the house, Mum Lee, and kids Callum and Lauren all piled into the ute and when we got close to the beach they let him out.

I stayed in the car and shot these from the passenger’s window.

Ooops... "Run Max, RUN!"

Here are a few more of Max from the rest of the day.

After Max, I went to see TJ (Yorkie) and Kebab (cat)

Here are my faves of them. Hasn’t Kebab got a hilarious expression! I seriously thought he was going to have a go for a minute. Then he decided he could tolerate me after all. But just for a minute.
