Handles of Calligraphy Brush, by Siew Bee Lim

It was a sunny day, and I was roaming in China town to photograph. These calligraphy brushes looked colorful to make a nice image. They were displayed in front of a table at a stall, facing pedestrians. I find it better to compose the frame with just the handles. Such calligraphy brushes are not used for writing, but for decorative art and craft on desk or wall. Those calligraphy brushes made of bamboo or wood are common.

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.
