Cactus by Siew Bee Lim

This is a photograph of the top of a cactus plant, which is on the ground soil, about half a meter in height. I find it interesting with the little leaves. The morning sunshine is not yet reaching the cactus, and there is dew on it. Some days afterwards, I revisit the plant, and the little leaves are no longer found.

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.
