Flowers of a Kassod Tree, by Siew Bee Lim

This image of flowers of a Kassod tree (Senna siamea) was taken at the reservoir park on one fine day. The flowers were on the end of branches. The tree was nearby a slope, which helped me to get closer. The tree was rather short, about six meters. At one branch, there were fruits in the shape of green beans. I took the image early in the morning. The flowers were fresh and the sunlight not strong.

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.
