This is a close-up photograph of Moses-in-the-cradle with leaves in purple on the underneath. The little white flowers of the herb emerge from shell-shape buds. It was early in the morning, and as the plant is almost at ground level, high ISO was set to light up the frame. The photo attempts to show the depth and dimension of a texture in nature. It was taken in February 2019.

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.
