The clock tower of the Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall was designed by R. A. J. Bidwell (of Swan and Maclaren,) an English-born architect noted for his colonial era buildings in Singapore. The Victoria Concert Hall is Singapore’s oldest concert hall. Its 673 seats offer an immediate connection with the artistes on the stage. The concert hall has been used as a performance venue by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra since 1980. I took the two photographs in August 2018.

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.
