Impala Lily by Siew Bee Lim

This is a photograph of flower of impala lily (Adenium obesum), which is an evergreen flowering plant. The photo tries to showcase the color of harmony in nature. In my neighborhood, the flower in pink and white is more commonly found, and they are often in pot. This plant is on ground about one meter in height. It was early on a cloudy day, and the rays of sunshine barely visible.

Photograph Location

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.
