An old woman watches two magpies perched on a fence in a garden
A black and white image of an elderly woman wearing glasses, a striped shirt and long spotted skirt, and under a shady sunhat, standing in front of a partially corrugated iron building intently watching a pair of Magpies perched on a wire fence. This image was shot while filming 'The Water Dwellers' 1967: Situated only 25 miles (40 kilometres) from Sydney, the largest city in Australia, Pittwater is an area of almost land-locked waterways where people can live in natural surroundings within a few minutes of transport to the city. Film Australia has tried to convey the relaxed life of people who live on Pittwater and the unique relationship that they enjoy with beautiful, natural surroundings.
