‘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.

SNAPSHOICE

The thing is, how difficult sometimes is to choose a photograph out of the other similar 200 snaps that you’ve taken.

Here an example. I like the four snapshots I took this morning 8 a.m., well, I actually took many more but the semifinal choice are these four. Each one has same views but told differently, using different words, sounds and feelings. So, sometimes, the nuances between pictures are a pain in the ass. It’s a challenge. First you like A, then you like C, then Z, but you upload C and you realize that the one that really represents you and your message is A.
