Baby Dog – Latest Addition to the I Love Bali Dogs Gallery

Born to be Wild

We call him Baby Dog. Baby Dog is a Bali Street Dog who refuses to be taken in. Meaning he loves his freedom so much that he will probably never be “domesticated”.

We’re Owned by Him 😉

We’ve been watching over him ever since his mother passed last year. We called her Mommy Dog. Baby Dog now lives in our front yard because of a new construction project at his original home. We’re happy he chose to be closer to us. We love him. And, he’s grown fond of us.

See his photo and more images of Bali’s beloved street dogs in the I Love Bali Dogs photo gallery.

While cameras were always familiar to me, it was my introduction to Henri Cartier-Bresson and Elliot Erwitt’s photography that proved life changing. ~Sid Kannegnati

Priceless Smiles, Details, Bali Dogs, & Mad Photography Skills – Photos by Guest Photographer Simon Gray

October 2018 officially Marked the first anniversary of Bali Street Photographer

Having guest photographer Simon and his daughter Aurora join me in October was a perfect way to celebrate the first full year of the Pasar Ubud Street Photography tour! And, there’s more. The icing on the cake is that Simon recently opened a solo exhibit (24 November) in his home town of Perth. His exhibit featured many of his incredible photographs from the Pasar Ubud tour. Simon is even donating some of the proceeds to our donation partners!

Simon’s Gallery posted on Bali Street Photographer

Recently, Simon generously shared many of his images. I am now honoured to host some of his beautiful work on this site for your viewing pleasure.

See Simon’s Bali Street Photographer gallery here.

Finding Empathy & Compassion in Ubud Bali

The Loyalty of Bali Dogs

This market vendor is accompanied by her Bali Dog. Bali Dogs are recognised as one of the oldest canine breeds. They are proven to be fiercly loyal once their trust is earned. Many Bali Dogs aren’t as loved as this one. So, seeing compassion such as this gives me hope.

Helping Bali Street dogs

Bali Street Photographer tours collaborates with Mission Paws’ible. Mission Paws’ible’s vision is to engage compassion within our human race, creating compassionate, loving and kindness that will resonate to create happy pets with safe homes.

Stay tuned

I’m developing a photo essay devoted to the Bali Dogs of the Pasar. Please stay tuned.

In the meantime, see more Bali Dog photos here.

Sittin’ on the “dock” of the Pasar – Best time to photograph a Bali Dog

“Two thousand miles I roam. Just to make this dock my home” ~Otis Redding

The Bali Dogs of the pasar seem to follow a schedule. When the pasar is in full swing early in the morning, they are scattered and roaming around individually. Towards 7:30-8:00 am, they beging to form in groups and forage together or wait for vendors to throw scraps their way. Generally, this is the best time to photograph a Bali Dog in Pasar Ubud.

Bali Dog Gone Fishing

While on assignment on Nusa Lembongan, a small island off the coast of South Bali, we spotted this beautiful Bali dog foragging for food in the ocean. We’ve rescued and adopted many dogs over the years. Yet, I’ve never seen a dog actually “fishing” before. And, the traditional jukung (outrigger boat) presented a picturesque backdrop while giving the photo context.

Bali Dogs of the Pasar

I have a love affair with Bali dogs. I make portraits of Bali dogs every chance I get. But, I don’t post them. I’m not really sure why. Maybe because I don’t think the general public will find them interesting or because I feel there are way too many photos of dogs on the internet already?

Anyway, I think the story of the Bali dog needs to be shared. So, I’m finally preparing a photo essay dedicated to the beautiful Bali dog. Please stay tuned.

Here’s a mini gallery of Bali Dogs of the Pasar in the mean time.
