Leopard Flower by Siew Bee Lim

Leopard flower is one common name for Iris domestica. Other common names are blackberry lily, and leopard lily. The plant grows to near one meter; the flowers can range from red to orange to yellow. I took this photograph in December 2018. It was one fine morning, and I was at the Chinese and Japanese garden. I saw the only flower blooming on the stem and composed the frame with the plants in background.

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.
