The Dogs of Paekākāriki

During the last week of lockdown in August 2021, Bob Zuur photographed dogs and their humans on Paekākāriki Beach. Set to Tū Tilley’s song White Cloud Island, enjoy this visual and aural delight!

“Something I noticed when walking my dog on Paekākāriki Beach during lockdown was that lots of others were also doing this: walking, or running, or cycling with their dog safely on the beach. So I took my camera, put on my mask, stayed at least four metres from people (I used a telephoto lens) and very quickly took some photos.” – Bob Zuur
