Australia Day picnic, Sydney, 2011

A colour photograph of a group of five women, four men and a child sitting in a circle on the grass in the shade of some trees. All are dressed in tee shirts and all but one woman, who wears jeans, are wearing shorts. One man and one woman are sitting in fold-up picnic chairs and one woman is sitting on an icebox; the remainder are sitting on picnic rugs. The woman in the chair has her arms around a small child who is standing in her lap. The back of a dog is just visible on the right of the group behind some tree trunks. A number of bags and iceboxes are on the grass around the group. Food containers are laid out in the centre of the picnic rugs. In the background is a wide expanse of water with buildings and trees visible on the far side. A large number of boats of varying sizes are on the water. To the right, behind the picnicking group, five people and a black dog are walking along the water's edge and just beyond them several people are swimming.
