Papaya Leaf by Siew Bee Lim

This is a photograph of part of a papaya leaf, which I locate the young tree on a small slope, with the leaf at my eye level when I stand on the slope. The papaya leaf is big and flat, I try to make it artistic by including another leaf of the tree in the background. The photo attempts to present the texture and pattern of the leaf 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.
