An Ice Cream Man by Siew Bee Lim

It was one fine day in May 2018. Near the Cavenagh Bridge, there was an ice cream store at the back lane beside the river. Some tourists bought ice cream from the store. A few took pictures with the ice cream store blissfully. I asked to photograph, and the ice cream man posed for me habitually like he had done so as before. I had to take the picture, and it turned out a bit dark. I had my ice cream, and stayed around to take a few more shots.

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.
