This is a close-up zoom photograph of Marigold, which is a common flower with local nick name ‘chicken droppings flower’ in Hokkien dialect. The auntie who told me the nick name also knew the flower name in English. It was quite early in the morning, and the flower has some dew on it. The photo attempts to show the depth and dimension of a texture in nature. It was taken in February 2019 nearby a neighborhood park.

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.
