Soursop Leaves by Siew Bee Lim

This is a photograph of soursop leaves. On that morning, the shower has just stopped, and I went out to the neighborhood with my camera. I had noticed the soursop tree the day before in the evening. Due to the young tree’s location on top of a steep slope, and the surrounding congested, I was unable to get as near as I wished to. Nevertheless, I zoomed in to take the picture. The leaf have damages, I use an angle to eliminate one of them, and to present the texture and pattern of it as most 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.
