Songkhla Old Town Building Wall by Siew Bee Lim

It was in Songkhla, Thailand when we visited the old town. The local tour guide highlighted buildings that are two to four hundred years old. In particular, we stopped by at one building; it displayed old photos of the King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Before going to the second floor, you must remove your shoes. At first a visitor appeared at one window, then two, and soon three windows are occupied.

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.
