The Stem by Siew Bee Lim
This is a close-up photograph of the stem and flower of solanum undatum. It is from the same plant as a young leaf. I saw a triangle at the time, and composed it with the stem, leaf and flower. For this photo, the highlight is not on the flower. The photo tries to show the depth and dimension of a texture in nature. It was taken in February 2019.

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.
