The Elderly Relative, by Siew Bee Lim

On the third day of our tour to Fujian, we went to a village to visit relatives of my friend’s mother side. This elderly relative was there since we reached the village. We went to a few other houses before visiting the last house, which is higher up on the hill. It is her house. The family plants tea on their land. It is a beautiful view from the front of her house.

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.
