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.
In a (hazel)nutshell, there has always been and always will be things, creatures and happenings that deviates from the standard, but that’s also the ordinary, the thing is that when it happens for the first (or millionth) time, nobody is yet prepared.

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.
Yesterday I met a very good friend of mine who’s an ace in Social Networking. I told him about my new website and, for many reasons, he absolutely recommended me to have an active blog. One of the reasons is that the blog is going to revive and some social networks will die. Another reason is that I have the freedom to upload what I feel like, things that can be or not professional (experiments), about any particular theme. I can do what I want. And so, the third reason is that the really interested surfers will enter my cybernetic laboratory because they’re looking for that specific themes and perhaps wants to interact…and perhaps they’ll want to follow me as well, and probably I’ll follow them…
This is my first blog, or should I better call it, lablogatory, about photography, video, film, music and sound.
