Carol singers as custom that still subsists at Samerberg

Girls and boys are actively engaged in their free time as carol singers, collecting donations for suffering people in developing countries. With chalk they write the letters C M B on the front door of each house to bless the entryway. It stands for Christus Mansionem Benedicat, the Latin words meaning, may Christ bless this home. Every year around Epiphany the catholic church does this campaign: groups of children dress up as the Three Magi and their entourage. They are then blessed at church and sent out to visit houses, sing their songs, bring the blessing to the houses, and collect donations for charity.

I am not a full time pro shooter, nor I am a aspiring or part time pros. Perhaps I fall into that category that the photo industry refers to as enthusiasts, some may say a consumer. I love to shoot photos and I am completely engrossed in the equipment, the techniques, the methods, the news and the general hoopla of photography. That`s pretty much why I have this blog, so that I can follow anything exciting happens in the world of photography. I claim no particular talent at photography, but it does something for me that you can just call shutter therapy. All these shutter therapy sessions give me a sense of joy and each time I shoot, I see things differently. I know, I`ve got a long way to get where I want to be regarding photography. Currently it`s still all trial and error...
