Hairy Leaves, by Siew Bee Lim

This image of Hairy Clidemia (Clidemia hirta) with hairy leaves was taken at the neighborhood park on one fine day. I took the image in the early morning. The plants were fresh and the sunlight not that strong. The tone presents the leaves well in the image. Clidemia has white flowers, and is commonly found in the nature parks and along roadsides. It was also found in my childhood ‘hill top’ village.

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.
