Hibiscus, by Siew Bee Lim

This image of a hibiscus was taken at the neighborhood park on one fine day. I took the image in the early morning. The flower was fresh and the sunlight not that strong. The more popular hibiscus has a long pistil. This hibiscus has more petals and thus the pistil appears short. Hibiscus plant is commonly found in gardens and parks.

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.
