A Decaying Lotus by Siew Bee Lim

It was one morning in mid of September, 2018. I was at the Chinese and Japanese Gardens with my camera, planning to take some photos. It was rather early then, and I saw this decaying lotus on the ground beside a pond of lotus plants. When still green, the lotus is green in color, and resides at the center of a lotus flower.

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.
