‘Poor Me Planet’ / ‘Planeta Pobre de Mi’

This weekend I was visiting my home town, and while walking by Plaza del Castillo I came across one of my 360 photographs. This photograph was for San Fermin 2016 photography competition.

The very well known ‘Chupinazo’ marks the beginning of San Fermin Festival of Pamplona, BUT the ‘Pobre de Mi’ (‘Poor Me’) indicates the end of this unique festivity which fills Pamplona up with people from all over the globe, bulls and music.

At ‘Poor Me’ people gather in front of Pamplona’s Town Hall minutes before and after 12a.m. on 14th July to sing the traditional song: “Poor me, poor me, because the San Fermín festivity has ended”. After 12a.m. the crowd takes their red ‘pañuelico’ (kerchief) off their neck and wave it while singing.

On this competition, I was finalist not winner. Poor me that did not win. Please, check out the winners 2016.

Special thanks to Mikel Muruzabal.
