Bougainvillea, by Siew Bee Lim

This image of Bougainvillea was taken at the reservoir park on one fine day. Bougainvillea has a common name called Paper Flower. I took the image early in the morning. The flowers were fresh and the sunlight was not yet strong. The tone presents the flowers well in the image. Paper flower has different colors, and is frequently found along the roadsides and overhead bridges.

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.
