Today, December 13, Sweden celebrates the Italian saint Lucia (forgotten by most Italians) Inevery preschool, school, hospital, private company, tiny town, whatever... she comes with candles in her hair, followed by maidens and a few copies of St Stephanus with the silly cone hat. They sing christmas carols and other season's songs. A modern addition are the "Santas little helpers" and maybe a ginger bread man.

Since my school has a music stream, the artistic quality is pretty high in the performance.

These started a few days early. The commune's Music School Christmas concert in church a few days ago. This is the little girls choir, "The Hummers". The musical level not so high, but sure they are cute.

Thanks for looking

Kjell

Two first auto WB, third was really tricky so I tweaked it in RSP to get is as close to reality I could. Artificial light, a blend of fluorecent tubes, volfram bulbs and whatever.

#1 was FA50 1.4 @ f3.5 1/60 ISO800

#2 was A* 2002.8 @ f2.8 1/60 ISO800

#3 FA 50 mm 1.4 @ f1.7 1/30 ISO 800

Beautiful shots Kjell. I had the pleasure of being in Stockholm once for St. Lucia day. It is a beautiful tradition, though the candles in the hair are a little scary at first. We got the opportunity to see sveral groups, and though the quality of the singing varied, all were very enjoyable.

Now I feel the need for some glog.
