Beads in Royal Blue by Siew Bee Lim

It was one day in October of 2018. I was near Beach Road looking for subjects in different shades of blue to photograph. I noticed a shop displaying some colorful beads at the front, and took two photographs of different blues. The first image shows beads in royal blue, the second image shows beads in International Klein Blue. They are selling at two dollars per packet.

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.
