A Consultation, by Siew Bee Lim

It was a fine day in May of 2018, and I was roaming around near Queen Street. This fortune teller was at his stall just some steps away from a popular temple. At times he would have aunties to ask him something. Perhaps the aunties were not as literate to get the meaning of certain ancient story being told in poem form, or perhaps they were asking about Chinese name study.

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.
