Kaaawa Morning Dogs
Photographs by Ian Lind
Every morning for more than ten years, we've gotten up before dawn in order to walk to the beach near our home in Kaaawa, Hawaii, and watch the sunrise. We started to meet people walking their dogs on the same early schedule, and began paying more attention to other friendly dogs living along our 3 mile route that winds through the small neighborhood. For two dedicated cat people, this was a new experience. This experience has slowly developed into daily contact with dozens of dogs who wait eagerly for an early morning dog biscuit from the canvas sack I now carry. This growing set of photographs tells their stories.
