The Round Pattern Window, by Siew Bee Lim

It was on the third day of our tour to Fujian. We went to the village in Quanzhou to visit relatives of my friend’s mother side. In-between visiting houses, we passed by this old house with wall mainly made of soil. The round pattern window looks unique. The house seems still in use; there is a layer of glass behind the window. As per our tour guide afterwards, the red bricks wall pattern is typical of the Quanzhou culture.

Photo of the Day Award Category: Still Life Photography
Photograph Location: Quanzhou, Fujian, China

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.
