An Old Lady in Purple, by Siew Bee Lim

On the third day of our tour to Fujian, we went to a village to visit relatives of my friend’s mother side. In-between visiting relative houses, we walked the village road. Outside one relative’s house, I noticed this old lady in purple stopped to look at us from the road. Her purple wear attracted me to take a snapshot of her. Soon after I clicked, she continued her walk down the road, further away from us.

Photographer: Siew Bee Lim (Singapore) Registered
Born in 1965 in Singapore, photography was one of the old hobbies of Siew Bee Lim. Now she would like to learn it formally via Light & Composition platform as she believes it’s not too late. Since primary school she is not good in drawing; she doesn’t have artistic hand that some of her classmates have. Nonetheless, she likes reading since young, and would try to appreciate Chinese paintings. Few years after she started working as a Programmer, she took up photography as a hobby. She attended a short course which included a session in the darkroom. In those days, good photographs were dependent on good darkroom skills. It was unlikely that she spent much time in the darkroom. Hence the hobby didn’t last long then. She believes that the present learning experience has a longer way to go.
