The Banorte Stadium is a soccer stadium of the team Dorados of Sinaloa located in the city of Culiacan Rosales, Sinaloa, and it is used generally for soccer matches. The stadium was inaugurated on August 9, 2003 in a game between Dorados of Sinaloa and the Cobras of Ciudad Juarez, the final score was Dorados 4-2 Cobras. The building has a capacity for 23.000 fans, same that was constructed in the year 2003 in a record time of only 3 months. The building has a capacity for 23.000 fans, same that was constructed in the year 2003 in a record time of only 3 months. The first goal in the stadium was scored by the player Hector Gimenez Silvera. The stadium Banorte was completed in just 3 months. In the middle of 2003, the creation of the Dorados was announced, in those times of Culiacan, and with it the professional soccer came to Culiacan. The city had a team already, but a stadium was needed, a building capable of receiving the First A LEAGUE (the promotion league in Mexico) and to fulfill with the requirements of the Mexican Federation of soccer. They thought about the Universitario stadium, but its capacity was very small and it didn’t have sufficient space for an enlargement. And there weren’t many options. Aside of the Humaya River, in the STASE neighborhood, part of the Urban Project Tres Rios, there is a soccer field, which until 2003, it was a court with tradition inside the amateur soccer games, the “princes”, called by the veterans, or el “Carlos Gonzalez and Gonzalez”, named like this in memory of the brewery concessionaire, which gave great support to neighborhood soccer. There was the foundation of the dream of the Sinaloenses soccer players called Dorados. Those same ones that in record time of 3 months, some say it was less, they got up and gave shape to what is today the Banorte Stadium, with an investment of 55 million 238 thousand 236 pesos, and an initial capacity for 14.000 fans. It is granted for 15 years, with the endorsement of the state congress to the company Stadiums of Sinaloa, S.A de C.V. After the promotion of the Dorados of Sinaloa to LIGA MX (first division in Mexico), the Banorte Stadium, had the need to increase their capacity to host matches of the first division. After the promotion of the Dorados of Sinaloa to LIGA MX (first division in Mexico), the Banorte Stadium, had the need to increase their capacity to host matches of the first division. The stadium had an initial capacity of 16.000 fans comfortably seated and the target was to extend it for 25.000. By the year 2005 the remodeling work had a great advance; by 2006 the enlargement was almost finished, the only thing left to build was the stages of the river area, but when the Dorados of Sinaloa have relegated to the promotion league back again the construction of these stages were canceled. Currently the stadium has a capacity of 23.000 fans.

In Color Software (www.kolor.com) they have done a great job improving this fantastic program in the last years. Also it is available for Mac and PC and in two versions: Autopano and Autopano Giga. The application is well translated into Spanish and the team of development is opened to listen to the suggestions of the clients. It has some other advantages with regard to PTGui, apart from the language, centered especially on the automation of certain processes such as automatic detection of panorama within a folder or multiple selections of files or multiple file selection.
 
If the capital of Hungary can boast about anything, it is the possession a significant cast, not only nationally but also internationally, of buildings of great historical importance. If we take a walk in the City Park, we stumble upon one of them, although not very old, if it belongs to the most interesting. Let's get acquainted with the Vajdahunyad Castle. This castle was built between the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth, initially made of wood and cardboard for the universal exhibition of 1896. This castle was built between the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth, initially made of wood and cardboard for the universal exhibition of 1896. Its success in this exhibition made one to be built in original material of the same, it is to say, with stone and brick, giving place to what is known today. Its exact location is on a small island called Szechenyi Island, which is accessed through a drawbridge, although there are a total of four bridges leading to the castle. It is surrounded by a navigable lake of the same Park of the City, by which we can take a pleasant boat ride. In winter (from November to March), it becomes a fantastic outdoor ice skating rink, being the largest in Europe. The castle of Vajdahunyad is, in large part, a copy of the castle of the same name that is located in the locality of Transylvania, in Romania. However, this building in Budapest managed to bring together various architectural styles between its walls and interiors, which shows the evolution of Hungarian architecture over the years. The castle of Vajdahunyad is, in large part, a copy of the castle of the same name that is located in the locality of Transylvania, in Romania. Details we find in the castle are, for example, the famous statue called Anonymous. This statue represents, in the surroundings of the castle, a chronicler of the XII century that was the author of the first books on the history of Hungary, from the antiquity, being based, above all, in legends. Tradition says that touching the pencil that it holds in its hand brings good luck. Another place to visit in the castle is the Museum of Agriculture, which has its headquarters in it since 1897. It is the largest agricultural museum in Europe, containing eight permanent exhibitions, throughout the year, where we can know the History of agriculture, winemaking, fishing, gardening, animal husbandry, forestry, etc. All this is linked to the events that are held in the museum as gastronomic fairs, concerts or children's activities, among others. Once again, Budapest leaves a mark with another impressive building that takes us back to the history of the country in several areas. You cannot miss visiting this castle, located in the City Park and enjoy the events and activities that allows us to appreciate in it. The Patio del Castillo is open twenty-four hours a day, every day of the week. While visiting the interior and the Museum of Agriculture, the hours are from November 1st to March 31st , from Tuesday to Friday, from 10 am to 4 pm, and Saturdays and Sundays, until 5pm.

In Culiacan, we are supportive, hardworking and positive. This beautiful blue morning and with the first winds of the cool autumn that refuses to arrive, we have lived and breathed a festive atmosphere that embraces those who live and face the fight against an invisible enemy. Everything happened in order, in the early hours of this morning and with the sun still hidden, the fences, the arches of exit and finish, the stands of the sponsors ... the first aid area and the registration tables. The camouflage rose t-shirts were already invading Plaza 500, felt the freshness of the morning, or the dying of the night. Faces, mostly women, cheerful and somnolent perhaps; Faces that reflected the rigor of the dawn and the softness of hope; Faces of many faces, all young faces, of whom has hope, will, courage and nobility, regardless of age! They joined in silence and with order they were grouping and advancing towards the zone of heating, tens, hundreds to complete more than 1600 competitors of the Pink Army. The voices began to give instructions, the professional photographers and the spontaneous ones with their cell phone capturing already the first images of groups of friends, of couples, families, ́compadres ́ and employees of companies that concurred in the movement in favor of the warriors. At 7 o'clock, already with the first rays of the sun illuminating the vault of "blue hope", where knowing that you can and wanting to be can makes all the gathered there challenging the future with the heart remind us the music of Diego Torres ... hope color.

Today we miss Itzel Navidad, a warrior who left us only a few months ago, but we feel that her spirit of struggle and solidarity is here, the one who accompanied us with so much energy to carry out the first edition and lead the group of dignified and strong warriors of our city that every day fight taking care of their health and receiving treatments. You did not leave Itzel because you left this seed that we see today in a pink tree of good wishes, where the participants left their messages of love for those who were today their inspiration to compete and to coexist. This emblematic pink tree was the frame that accompanied the beautiful bottom of the River Tamazula to witness the photographs you will see in this photo shoot through our photo gallery of Sinaloa360. The community of Culiacán came out to say, in peace, that if you can and that there is no one fighting in solitude because today we were one, with the same purpose, the same idea and purpose. The exit of the corridors began shortly after the joyful warm-up dance, of the choreography that hundreds danced. They went first, those who would have to walk 10 km, followed the 5 km, finally those who would walk or run 3 km. everything was camouflage pink shirts, accompanied by colorful strollers, tiny or large dogs and some other bicycle. They emphasized groups of small of diverse ages that from early age are involved in the activities of community, with the greater energy that excels at a young age. Thus came the first to the goal, for some it seemed that they had just left, for others, their faces reflected the struggles of effort. They were arriving, the photographs and videos in the goal; the delivery of medals of participation, applause and shouts ... then a hurried respite or a sigh of relaxation. All to recover lost liquids, to drink a drink with salts or natural ... all happy. The Culiacanenses are good people, hardworking people, enthusiastic, supportive, enterprising and in addition to big-hearted. Hugs between competitors or with the recipient, kisses and even support to continue the walk to a place to rest and recover. For more than an hour competitors were arriving. In the end the groups were concentrating near the pink tree to take the photograph of the memory, or inside the pink car. The Culiacanenses are good people, hardworking people, enthusiastic, supportive, enterprising and with great heart. Once again it was demonstrated that we embrace the common causes, which surround us with love and support for those who are vulnerable, those who suffer and those who struggle, thanks Culiacán, thank you families! Pink Army is a great movement that is just beginning, that is already in many hearts and that will continue in the fight against cancer.

Little Planet The spherical 360 photographs that make up this virtual tour are of great difficulty in its elaboration. When using an 8 mm lens, fisheye, to achieve the complete image requires four shots. It is performed the first, rotates the Nodal Ninja 90 degrees and the second shot is made, then rotating again 90 degrees are made the third and fourth take. So you can appreciate that day there was a very large number of people on the move, so when wanting to sew the images in PTGui, in each take the position of all was totally different. The only way to get a clean job that looks like a single shot, is to use Photoshop's PSB format and by using layers and masks and after a very detailed work, you can get a good result.

Culiacan, the first village of the Mexican Northwest, the capital of the State of Sinaloa, is located in the foothills of the Western Sierra Madre where the rivers Humaya and Tamazula give origin to the river that takes the name of the city. It is believed that Culiacan is a Nahuatl word composed from "Col-hua-can" that means "place of those who worship the God Coltzin." In that time, it gave birth to the territory that Culiacan occupies today, when the establishment Huey-Cualhuacán was established in the place that was a required stop for the Nahoas that were traveling to the Valley of Mexico. It is believed that Culiacan is a Nahuatl word composed from "Col-hua-can" that means "place of those who worship the God Coltzin." Already in the colonial times, the Spanish conqueror Nuño Beltrán, established on September 29th, 1531, the Town of San Miguel on the shores of the San Lorenzo River (close to Tabalá). But due to the constant attacks of the natives of the area, they had to move the establishment mentioned above to different places (several times), finally remaining located at the confluence of the rivers Humaya and Tamazula, a place that in present day is called Culiacán Rosales. During the XVI century, this town turned into the center of operations for the conquest, evangelization, and colonization of the North-East of the New Spain. In the following years, the location of this city and its booming population gave rise to the development of various economic activities. Such as livestock, agriculture, trade, among others; that in a whole forged the growth of this city and it was like this that on October 6th, 1821, after having changed its name to the village of Culiacan, independence was sworn in this town. On July 21st, 1823 it is given the category of city, to be separated by a decree of the Congress the provinces of Sinaloa and Sonora. A year later these areas are tightened to the definitely separate in 1830, where the City of Culiacan was declared the capital of the independent state of Sinaloa. Although in the times of Don Plácido Vega, the capital of the State moved to Mazatlan, in 1873 it is brought back to the definite form to Culiacan as the capital. Within the era of modern Mexico, this city had significant events that marked its independent history. Within which we can highlight the promulgation of the first constitution of Sinaloa in 1831 the publication of the first newspaper a year later, the start of the construction of the cathedral in 1842 and the creation of the House of the coin in 1846, among others. It is also worth highlighting the fact that Culiacan was the only city that did not fall into foreign hands at the time of the French invasion, thanks to the Hero Antonio Rosales, for which reason the official name of the city is Culiacan Rosales. Nowadays this municipality includes little more than 4,700 square kilometers (8 % of the state). In the modern times, around 1878, Culiacán counted with three town halls, one in the head with the same name, other in the Badiraguato town hall, and the third one in Quilá. Also, it was constituted like Municipality using the decree published on April 8th, 1915. Nowadays this municipality includes little more than 4,700 square kilometers (8 % of the state). It's economically active population is occupied principally in the sectors of services, agricultural, fishing and industrial. Culiacán, not only is the capital of the state of Sinaloa, but also the economically more competitive municipality of the state due to its productive infrastructure and offer of services; corresponding to little more than 30 % of the entire state industry.

Little Planet Photo Gallery How this  Virtual Tour was made The photographs that I took to make this virtual tour were taken in the first minutes of the dawn getting a pretty color of heaven and it is also when there is less contrast because the shadows are very soft. The greatest challenge is the limitation of the camera of the drone, for the images not to be triplicated or moved, the minimum speed that can be used is a quarter of a second; so I had to wait for the light conditions to be sufficient to achieve the correct exposure.

It is in this place where we have also had the opportunity to coincide with our friends and family for many years and I hope to continue enjoying it. The virtual tours elaborated with spherical photography with drone have to be complemented with a spherical photograph realized in ground. With the drone the image of the Nadir is made, 8 images at -45 degrees, 8 more at 0 degrees and 8 at 45 degrees and on land is elaborated with a Nodal Ninja rod of 3 meters, the photograph of Cenit. In short, there are 26 photographs in 3-step bracketing giving a total of 78 images, which are revealed in Lightroom and in PTGui is the fusion of exhibitions. The result is very beautiful.
 
The port of Altata, head of Sindicatura of the town of Navolato, considered at the moment as a port of passage and place for family time, has had high and lows throughout its history, one which dates back to 1834 when it acquired importance by being qualified as the landing of charter vessels of merchandise, declaring itself to be an sea port in 1847, being from then until the beginning of the 20th century, the second most importance in the State of Sinaloa, for Its traffic, surpassed only by Mazatlán. Altata was ratified as a sea port on November 30th, 1881, supported by its magnificent geographical location. Altata was ratified as a sea port on November 30th, 1881, supported by its magnificent geographical location that became a point of link for the introduction and distribution of goods brought from other countries to Mexico, as well as for the exit of agricultural, industrial, and mining production, not only from Sinaloa but also from the neighboring states like, Chihuahua and Durango to other parts of the Mexican Republic and abroad, through its connections to San Francisco, California, through the Curacao steam of the Pacific Coast Steamship Co. ". That form of communication and transportation was extended with the routes that covered the Guaymas, Manzanillo and Porfirio Díaz Vapors of the company that owns and administers the Occidental Railroad of Mexico, touching the ports of La Paz, Mazatlán, San Blas, State of Nayarit; Manzanillo, State of Colima and Altata. In 1883, Altata received a new impulse to economical development. Increasing with this its contribution to the rest of the entity and the country. In 1883, Altata received a new impulse to economical development. Increasing with this its contribution to the rest of the entity and the country. At the beginning of its operations, the Western Railroad of Mexico, whose route only reached Culiacan, despite the original concession, indicating Durango, the state capital of the same name as the target, with the Altata station being one of the most important, “El Tacuarinero" was for more than three decades the only means of transport, of passage and load, with reliablity at that time in which those that today are productive agricultural fields, were only surfaces covered by thick mountain. In the history of Altata there are very important passages, such as the fact that in the second decade of the present century it was the scene of the armed struggles during the Mexican Revolution. In 1864, French troops landed into Culiacan in an intent to capturing the city, being repelled by General Antonio Rosales, in San Pedro town, today part of the Navolato city. In 1864, French troops landed into Culiacan in an intent to capturing the city, being repelled by General Antonio Rosales, in San Pedro town, today part of the Navolato city. One of the events recorded in Altata and that were in the history of our country, is that there, the General Plutarco Elías Calles deposited his vote in favor of the candidacy of General Lázaro Cárdenas, who on assuming the first magistracy expelled him from Mexico in 1936. The country's progress in terms of roads, such as the construction of the South-Pacific Railroad of Mexico in 1907, and the construction of the international highways and Culiacán-Navolato-Altata, led to a change in the Transportation programs, both passenger and cargo, and because the operation cost could not be paid, the route that from 1883 to 1934 was known as the Western Railroad of Mexico was cancelled due to insufficent funds, with its train known as "El Tacuarinero". This last event was decisive for Altata to "come to less"; i.e., an important source of work was terminated, as was the movement of loading of train to the vapors and vice versa. Also, the visits of "tourists" who periodically arrived to the port for their disbursements, although scarce, to support some restaurants and groceries that at that time functioned, decreased; activity that recovered noticeably when the road opened in the early "forties".

I did this virtual tour in the first minutes of the golden hour, getting some oranges and yellow saturated because that type of light still does not have great contrasts. Perhaps the most important thing to get a good image is to "retract" the histogram, to get the most shades in both illuminations and shadows.
 
Every project that is recognized as great has its history, and the Country Club of Culiacán is no exception, and to talk about it we must go back to 1955, the year in which the first efforts are made by Emilio Senac and Oscar Felix to gather friends who would like to play golf. The first group meets to practice this sport in a makeshift camp located in the colonia Chapultepec. The first group meets for the practice of this sport in an improvised field located in the colony Chapultepec. The following year, the growing number of players made the facilities inadequate and “Lomas de Culiacan Golf Club” was founded, on land donated by Don Ricardo Aguilar Figueroa. In the mid-1960s, and due to the real demand from golf players, as well as the fact that the mound lands became insufficient, the idea was to build a golf course that could satisfy all the needs of those who were passionate about this sport. The dreams of the pioneers crystallized on January 20, 1966, date in which the Country Club of Culiacan S.A. of C.V. was opened, in the lands where it is currently located. The dreams of the pioneers crystallized on January 20, 1966, date in which the Country Club of Culiacan S.A. of C.V. was opened, in the lands where it is currently located. The accomplishment of this project is thanks to the ability, will and effort of people such as: Adolfo Clouthier, Mario Tamayo, Alfonso Zaragoza, Miguel Angel Suarez, Arnoldo Murillo, Luis Flores Sarmiento, Adolfo Esquer, Jaime Peña Batiz, Alvaro Acosta, Hector Buelna Aviles, Víctor Manuel Corella, Gilberto Maytorena, Jose Félix Ceceña, Benjamín J. López, Emilio Senac, Rafael Yhip Palacios, Óscar Lelevier Bátiz and Jorge Chávez Castro. The golf course "The Iguanas" is a beautiful 18-hole course, with Putting Green and a practice tee, and other services such as carts and golf equipment, carts in the field, as well as a golf sports shop, where you can find everything you need for your personal golf equipment, with a schedule of: 6:00 AM At 8:00 PM In the Country Club tennis area there are several courts: 2 clay courts, a stadium court, 6 laykold courts and a tennis shop where you can purchase any accessories to practice tennis. The courts have the conditions and pleasant climate to practice this type of sport with a schedule of: 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM. “The Iguanario” is an ecological place where there are different types of animals, mainly iguanas, since in Country Club they are of vital importance to the sports club because it is the symbol that identifies it in the golf course "The Iguanas". For the conservation of this species, “Iguanario” has a schedule: 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Little Planet Photo Gallery How this Virtual Tour was made One Sunday morning, after a day of intense rain, I was at the golf course of the Country Club of Culiacan, taking 360 spherical photos to elaborate this virtual tour. I really liked the colors of the landscape, all the trees and plants were still wet and a pleasant aroma was all over the place. Luckily it was not raining and I was able to fly with the Phantom 3 drone. Perhaps the biggest problem you have to face when shooting with this type of drones is that the lens diaphragm is fixed at f / 2.8 and you cannot make images as with a DSLR camera.
 
Sinaloa, beautifully inclined from the mountains to the sea, is crossed by eleven rivers to which it owes its wonderful fertility to. Eleven cracks where the water of the mountain range comes down to the coast to detonate the green revolution that rises us like leaders of the grains and the vegetables of Mexico. It is a beautiful state, full of natural beauties that are worthy of showing off, and one of these beauties is located in the City of Culiacan, we refer to the Rio Tamazula It is a beautiful state, full of natural beauties that are worthy of showing off, and one of these beauties is located in the City of Culiacan, we refer to the Rio Tamazula, that is born in the Sierra Madre Occidental in the vicinity of the Topia valley, to the north of Real de Minas of the same name, and because it passes through the village of Tamazula, it takes this name. Its waters come to the Sanalona dam. Don Alonso de la Mota and Escobar, assured that in 1621 the natives called it Batacudea and the Spaniards, river of TOPIA. Arregui, in 1621, called it river Ytlaxa. The word Tamazula comes from the Nahuatl "Tamazullan" which means "Place or Laguna of toads". The word Tamazula comes from the Nahuatl "Tamazullan" which means "Place or Laguna of toads". For having been born in this state, General Guadalupe Victoria, the first President of Mexico, gave it its battle name, being known as "Tamazula of Victory". This river has a 280 kilometers length. The exact place of its birth is in the rivers of Síanuri and Topia, in the Durango state, it goes through the Tamazula village and joins to the Humaya River, In front of the city of Culiacán to form the river Culiacán, which end in the beautiful waters of the Gulf of California.

Little Planet Photo Gallery Howthis Virtual Tour was made In nature photos, what it usually looked for is splendor, the beauty of the scenery, to try to show the things in a best possible way, among other things. And for that, there are two moments of the day that are sacred for this type of photo, which they coincide with the sunrise and the sunset. During these moments, what is called the "golden hour" is produced, since the sun is low on the horizon, it generates a warm and very soft light. As the minutes are passing, the colors range from yellow to orange, pink, and violet. This light colors everything with those tones creating a unique atmosphere. During the sunset, which is a moment that we live in a more usual way, the sun goes down and generates that warm light. Gradually, the clouds start to color with a yellow tone and become orange each time with more intense tones. While the sun is still above the horizon, it manages to illuminate every item with a nice warm intense yellow light. Once the sun sets, there will be a few minutes in which the glare of the sun continues to generate these tones in the sky. However, the sun no longer illuminates the items directly.
 
I am much honored to have been chosen to share some of the stories of which I have witnessed. Although I am a bit young in the Campus, I know that many generations dreamed with me... Many of them are former students today, but even though I did not have the opportunity to hang out with them, a showcase full of trophies that make me remember their student life belongs to me. Most of the activities of the Direction of Student Matters were held in the halls, gardens or even on the stairs of the buildings of high school and university. In that time, the chords trying to harmonize for the first song festivals could be heard, tuned voices joined with some choreography in the rehearsals of musical theater, easels and canvas were filled with colors. Student groups were emerging on Campus and athletes left mark on the tennis courts. Eventually, they gave the news and finally the dream of having a Student Center would become a beautiful reality. I still remember the month of May 2003, the doors for me opened for the first time and I received with great joy all those young enthusiasts who were filling my emptiness with their talent, their charisma and their passion for art, sports, and leadership. In that time, the chords trying to harmonize for the first song festivals could be heard. As time passed, they realized how important and necessary I was in their lives, for my spaces had to be modified so all the visitors could feel accomplished in each of their activities. When I observe what happens in every lounge or lobby, it fills me with satisfaction to see them strengthened as human beings, and that they have learned to develop skills and competencies for life. I have turned into a home for many of them, here they share happy moments and sadness, celebrated victories and learnt from their defeats, some of them found the love of their life or developed endearing friendships, others discover their vocation for art and nowadays they are professional artists. Undoubtedly, every space has special memories, my walls and mirrors have been a witness of the million hours of rehearsals, in the dancing room, of the emotions that are generated in the auditions and how each of the ballet dancers demonstrate their positive attitude before any challenge to be faced. Different rhythms have been heard in the music room, its notes and chords harmonize perfectly making it that every person who enters forgets their problems and it find themselves. The colors become present in the lounge of painting, where creativity has no limits to be reinvented repeatedly. The voices that are heard in the singing lounge have pleasantly surprised me, they blend with theatrical exercises and intense monologs with emotions and feelings. With the pride of our roots I enjoy listening to the musical notes of The Sinaloense or The sauce and La palma with the young people who tap dance and showoff their elegant wardrobes of folkloric dance. But not everything is an art in my life, athletes also visit me and it is here where they train to improve their performance in the courts. But not everything is an art in my life, athletes also visit me and it is here where they train to improve their performance in the courts. Here they discover that the best competition is with themselves, that teamwork strengthens them and that humility makes them be bigger. Did you know that many of the congresses and camps of leadership have been planned here? I have the opportunity to listen to thousands of ideas of the leaders of campus, young enthusiasts who in addition to being entrepreneurs take the human sense as banner and join diverse causes to support and to give help those who need it. Young people who decided to transform lives, starting from their own, and to leave a trace with their activities and experiences. I have a luxurious wall, which it has been named: The queens' gallery. It is a space where talented women remain forever through a portrait, but the most important thing is that they have transcended through their actions for the sake of society. Here I am today, as always... enjoying student life that comes with each of the students and alumni of Campus Sinaloa. Here I am today, as always... enjoying student life that comes with each of the students and alumni of Campus Sinaloa. Many of them say that I am everything in their life because I transformed them, although really, they are the one who give me life and without them, my work and the work of coordinators of the different areas of student affairs would not be possible. You all are welcome to this 360 gallery in where you can enjoy my inside and see through every look, gesture and action of the students, everything that each day makes me vibrate. I am the Student Center of the Tec de Monterrey.

Little Planet Photo Gallery 1 Photo Gallery 2 How this Virtual Tour was made The spherical photography of The Student Center of the Technological Institute and de Superior Studies of Monterrey, Campus Sinaloa, allowed me to use the tool of the program PTGui stitching, replacing files and get to incorporate two images with different exposure. In some areas where the windows lighting was very intense (it was four o'clock in the afternoon in midsummer) contrast significantly with the interior, I did the first revealed with images of the interior with the correct exposure and then replace the burned image with a two steps photo underexposed...... perfect results.
 
La Primavera, or The Spring (season)in English, is a satellite city of the city of Culiacan, planned in full with a long term vision. La Primavera Urban Development. Its origins have three major events: ONE: In 1968 the 74th Irrigation District, on the right bank of the San Lorenzo River, was inaugurated, which included the work of the San Lorenzo Canal and La Primavera Dam, as part of the Northwest Hydraulic System (PLINO for its acronym in Spanish) to carry water through canals, by gravity, from the watersheds of southern Sinaloa to the north. There is more water on the south, less suitable soil for irrigation; in contrast, in the north, there is less water and more land. When a duct had to go through a depression of the land, it was more economical to build a dam, to form a lake serving as a bridge. Thus, many lakes emerged, La Primavera being one amongst them. TWO: In 1993, under Salinas’ government, the 27th article of the Constitution, which includes the Agrarian Reform Law, was amended, and the communal land holders were given the option of assuming full ownership of their lands, making them private and being able to sell them. That is how a series of seven communities offered their plots and we were able to acquire them; without this change, La Primavera would not exist. THREE: By chance, we came across two great urban planners: Bill Philips and Michael Doty, who became interested, got to know the place thoroughly and provided us with a brilliant project, which was then awarded, on an international competition, the first place on a regional competition for the Pacific valley. It is an area of approximately 1977 acres, which surrounds the 667 acres of La Primavera Lake; everything is inside a concrete perimeter wall and is surrounded by fast roads, which allow the people not going to La Primavera to pass by its side. What does La Primavera consist of ? It is an area of approximately 1977 acres, which surrounds the 667 acres of La Primavera Lake; everything is inside a concrete perimeter wall and is surrounded by fast roads, which allow the people not going to La Primavera to pass by its side. There is a network of fast routes inside, like a free-way type of road (economic) which allows cars to move without stopping, without traffic lights, from one side to the other, without passing in front of the houses. Next come the neighborhoods with built-in fences, a house entrance watchtower, with narrow streets, and curves that prevent high-speed traffic. Each neighborhood has its own construction rules, and in the neighborhood’s best area there is a clubhouse with a swimming pool and sports courts, for the exercise and leisure of condominium owners. Moreover, they also have a small shopping center with their basic necessities. Inside there are 26 streams, only two having a small flow of water, the others only when it rains; these were extended, the riverbed was paved, trees were planted and they have a corridor that goes from the lake to the perimeter wall, along with a 10 meter wide zone around the lake, from its shoulder, reserved as common areas, as well as having an asphalt or concrete road. Together, they form a pedestrian road, to be used by foot, bicycle, skateboard, motorcycle, or horse, everything is allowed. This huge network integrates all the neighborhoods and we can go from one to the next without crossing any street. The lake itself was modified; 3 million cubic meters of soil were moved so that the lots facing the lake had a slope suitable for boat navigation. At the same time two large inhabited islands and six smaller ones, for birds and trees, were made. All counted, there are 15 kilometers of water front. The main destination points have direct access to the water, and it is possible to navigate on wave runners, power and sail boats, kayak, from one of these destinations to the next. That is how the three networks are integrated: vehicles on land, people and water. More than 150,000 trees have been planted, watered by drip or pipe irrigation systems, they are all are registered by their three coordinates on the blueprints. A fundamental part of the project is afforestation, more than 150,000 trees have been planted, watered by drip or pipe irrigation systems, they are all registered by their three coordinates in the blueprints. Side streets have uniform and medium sized trees whereas palm and bigger trees were planted alongside the main roads, streams, lake banks, parks, and clubhouses. In Culiacan to enjoy the outdoor areas it’s necessary to: Be in a safe environment where there are no robberies or kidnappings on days and nights. Have pleasant spaces, walkways, sports courts, water... Ample shade, ventilation. And be accessible by walking from the front of your house.  Fauna: Since before, many animals inhabited here, and with the large afforestation, now there are a lot more. A Belgian photographer took pictures of 90 different birds and a digital archive exists. Some of those birds were migratory. There are fish, such as carp, tilapia, catfish, and bass. As well as, iguanas, rabbits, hares, rattlesnakes, tarantulas, toads, deer, wild cats, coyotes, crocodiles, etc. There are fish, such as carp, tilapia, catfish, and bass. As well as, iguanas, rabbits, hares, rattlesnakes, tarantulas, toads, deer, wild cats, coyotes, crocodiles, etc. People who exercises, walking or riding a bike, can often admire a variety of animals. Within the project, industrial areas are planned. Every day, more than 4,000 people go into factories, office and commercial businesses for work., about 8,000 people work here (2016) providing services to the condominium owners so they do not require to go outside. In addition, the corporate offices of the most important companies are located here. A golf course, with 9 holes built, was developed on the most suitable terrain, allowing thousands of homes to have the most beautiful green areas on their sight. The houses are built to the liking of each family. The first family arrived in 2000, and in 2016 it was inhabited by more than a thousand families. There is a construction and land use regulation that provides certain harmony. There are no outside billboards, most of the houses do not have fences, allowing the enjoyment of the architecture and the houses’ gardens. We have two schools of the highest level covering from kindergarten to high school, many children and youngsters go on foot, on bicycle or motorcycle, to their classes, and there is an environment that promotes the great human values, sports and family coexistence. Lots and house sales are not promoted by mass media, they are realized only through invitation and new people are accepted by a committee. Growth is little by little. Why does La Primavera exist? We can say that everybody’s dream is to live in a safe and pleasant environment, with all the correct services, in a great freedom and harmony between neighbors, with the city of Culiacan and nature. While modern cities are prone to acts of violence, robberies, kidnappings, traffic problems, pollution, etc., La Primavera provides an alternative that solves most of the problems of the cities. It is likely, that with the passage of time, today’s cities will have more problems and that over time, each year that passes, La Primavera is made into a better place to live. The difference will increase. Little can be seen of the positive effect that this physical environment can have on the future of the families that live here, but we might be surprised. Only time will tell. Physical aspects: 1. Services built by La Primavera and that the condominium owners maintain and operate: Potable water Water for irrigation and a sprinkler system that operates every night. Sewage – Water treatment subcontracted to the city. Electricity–All underground transformers. Telephony of the highest quality. Natural gas network. CableTV. Peripheral electrical circuit with services and alarms. 4 meters concrete perimeter walls and 2 meter high fences around each neighborhood. 24 hours surveillance, video cameras, sensors. Very efficient rainwater sewage. A clubhouse in every neighborhood. Gardens and sports courts, green areas, maintained by the condominium. Night illumination,among others. 2. It turns out that living in La Primavera also have these benefits: 2 degrees cooler temperature. We use the air conditioner 2 months less in the year. Saving on electricity and water. The gardens are watered with non-potable water. Saving on sports club fees. Savings in reduction of vehicular theft (it does not happen), of houses (it happens but only in a few cases). A house,for most families, is the principal asset and the normal thing in the city is that, in time, it loses its value, this does not happen in La Primavera, because of the respect to the use of the land norm. Everyone makes life more outdoors; healthier, better quality of life.        Text: Enrique Coppel Luken Virtual Reality (VR) Virtual reality images for virtual reality glasses viewing in mobile devices There are no limits to see the world: live the experience by yourself in virtual reality !

We began the elaboration of aerial spherical photography with images from one of the most beautiful places in Culiacan... La Primavera... After an intense process of learning the photography technique imparted by the Colombian photographer Mario Carvajal, and a very professional training in the handing of a Phantom 3 drone imparted by the professional drone pilot Esteban Verdugo Urrecha, we installed on our web site, a new section where we will show places of interest of Sinaloa and outside of Sinaloa with a different point of view... The Aerial Spherical Photographs Section.
 
The corridors of the hospital may seem like endless kilometers for a child that hurts for every step they stopped giving because of the ravages of chemotherapy. They are steps that can become memories and anecdotes thanks to the steps and tracks that others have decided to make for a noble cause. The race 19VA Ganac - ITESM is a support of the families of Culiacan for children with cancer. In November of 1996, the founders of Ganac together with the enthusiasm and support of teachers and students of Tecnologico of Monterrey began with what has become a tradition over time; a race that year after year adds more people who enjoy family day with all its members, including their pets, which like their owners, put the shirts on. Virtual Reality (VR) Virtual reality images for virtual reality glasses viewing in mobile devices There are no limits to see the world: live the experience by yourself in virtual reality ! Join us ! Little Planet Photo Gallery How this Virtual Tour was made Major events such as the race Ganac - ITESM is the same as previous organizations. It’s good to know all the activities that will be developed. When, where and how. This way it can be estimated what is interesting to photograph, if you have photographic equipment necessary and if there are possibilities of witnessing the chosen activities. There is no need to carry overweight accessories. Many times you'll find yourself surrounded by hundreds of people, like in my case in the Isla de Oraba, where it will be almost impossible that you can move easily. Just take a pair of lenses and turn on your creative soul. What lenses? On the one hand, it depends on the nature of the event. On the other hand, some that best suit the way you see. If you like close details, think short optical, and if your view is always thinking of distant points, then lean for telephoto lenses. You may at times, miss lenses that you decided not to bring, but on many other occasions you'll be happy with the decision, especially when you're working lightly. This time I used a Sigma 8mm for spherical photograph and a Nikkor 24-70 f / 1.8 for a flat photograph. A suitcase or backpack is also important: think of one that will allow you take photographs easily but will not be annoying for people. The smaller and lighter, the better.
 
The still young city of Los Mochis, rises proudly as a real gem of the northwest of Mexico. “Mochim” plural of “Mochic” which translates from the cahitan language as “Tortuga de tierra” (land turtle) o “Mochi” name of a plant which abounded in the zone in which it now settles. Doña (Mrs) María Ochoa, daughter of Don (Mr) Zacarias Ochoa who got to meet and deal with Benjamin F. Jhonston, founder of the sugar mill that gave life to the population, testified (and there’s still an original map of that date who´s copy is in “La Casa del Centenario”) that the name had a simpler origin: “Los Mochos”, a nearby ranch, it was called like that because the founder of that family was missing one arm, and the settlers who lived in the socialist colony of Owen, degenerated the term, because of their foreignism they pronounced it “Los Mochis” until finally it remained as: “Los Mochis”. Hail beautiful lady of Valle del Fuerte! Beyond the linguistic paternity of the name, the population who gave its first hesitant steps around the chimneys of the sugar factory, was destined to be called the progressive and beautiful city in which it has become, being among the first in great life quality and of the most progressive of the Mexican Republic. Gone forever are the muddy streets during rainy season and big dust storms during winter. Nevermore will the “black rain” of soot from the chimneys and cane burning from the nearby fields will be seen it. The heavy creaking of the bogies where carries were made from the place of cutting to the mills of the factory. Nevermore will wagons be pulled by trucks and tractors lifting dust storms and children running after them from the settlements and small towns to steal the sweet and juicy sugar canes that were spilled on the sides giving free treats for the poor. Goodbye forever to the pitched and melancholic whistle that marked the life of the mochitenses between great gulps of steam thrown by the big black chimneys always covered in soot. Finally, the factory that stamped agonizingly in the last harvests, ceased to exist. Ironically the city that started out joyous at the beginning of the last century, eventually drowned it and the changes of progress annihilated it. But like the Phoenix, from those black ashes has emerged a new creation! An extraordinary turning point has been opened between nostalgia and tradition. The community of homes made of wood, huts made of mud, two traffic lights by the main street which were subject of admiration by the locals of that time, has had the extraordinary metamorphosis of the silkworm and a butterfly has sprouted that flutters beautifully in the green valley. Today it opens its arms to the brothers of Mexico and the world that arrive by air, sea and land. Today it gets ready to tell everyone, that it is a worthy and beautiful city with all the comforts and services. ¨Come! ¨ She says proudly and self-satisfied. 
¨Come! Everyone is welcomed¨ Meanwhile the ones who are here, from the bottom of our hearts and with the most sense of respect and the most intimate gratitude we say to you: Hail to Los Mochis! Hail beatiful lady of Valle del Fuerte!

Little Planet How this Virtual Tour was made Thanks to Hotel Best Wester from Los Mochis for the facilities that help us to elaborate this tour. The night photograph at that altitude is complicated on account of the wind, even if it is really light, the camera can move and the quality will no longer be acceptable. Because of this the diaphragm can’t be closed too much and the ISO has to be higher to get an appropriate shutter speed.
 
Nobody can pass without seeing it and nobody can get to Los Mochis without making reference of the surrounding. There it is. Watchful and proud of the city that has grown at its roots. Looking over the green fields of Valle del Fuerte. Beside it the past of pitahayas and hills has passed to give way to the present of grains and prosperity. It “El Cerro de la Memoria” Guardian of the centuries that have passed. Witness of the transit from Cahita to Spanish. From the indigenous walking to the fusion with the new white culture. Form the cheerful and mystical sound of Tenabri Yoreme to the hurried and loud passage of the Yoris by the new paths that hurt its hills to make way for progress of this lands. “Memorial Hill” how the first North American settlers had baptized it, because there at its skirts they buried their first dead ones. Banderacahui, as the Indians called it, based on their cahita dialect. Long ago that lighthouse that during the nights was a guide for travelers and a reference for the ships that sailed the waters near the “Mar de Cortes” ripping the vestments of the night with a light of hope that made shine the amused eyes of city and rural kids of that time. But today the old Cerro de la Memoria rejuvenates each night wearing multicolor lights from the communication antennas that crown it, like Rey Feo of those carnivals that were the delight of past generations. Here it is and here it will remain and shall remain memory of beings and events that will write new and extraordinary stories of this marvelous region. For now, from its summit, “La Virgen del Valle” still from her stone tenderness, blesses those who come and the travelers passing down there to arrive safely to their destinations. "La Pérgola de Los Mochis" Hanging from the skirt of the “Cerro de la Memoria” like a playful girl, La Pergola de Los Mochis overlooks the city that now reaches its own roots. It wasn’t like this in the year of 1960 over the pool of drinking water it was built to shape the obligatory walk of the families of that time who came to the groves that grow there. It had its time of splendor at the time. The best orchestras and bands with their “music of wind” played from there their best notes and boys and girls of that time enjoyed dancing until dawn. It’s one of those events, in a lively dance of a winter night that burst from that place emerges and since then it has into the talk of friends and strangers, giving to “La Pergola de Los Mochis” that air of mystery that still gives the chills to those who hear it. An outsider young man goes to that dance with some local friends. These guys had their partner but the outsider didn’t. Once into the starry and cold night, this young fellow saw a beautiful and solitary young lady sitting dressed in white. Neither slow nor lazy, he approached her inviting her to dance and with one deep look of her beautiful eyes and an almost expressionless smile she agreed. The visitor immediately fell in love with this young lady of so mysterious beauty. Her black hair matching her eyes of strange dark deepness flitted with the north wind of winter as well as giving a greater air of intrigue. Only one thing did not match with that feminine monument: the cold of her hand and her cheeks that touched in the embrace of the dance. And her voice, though soft, it appear to have a strange eco. At one point she asked the time and he answered: -“it’s 12 o’clock” -“I have to go!” She said letting out a strange trembling tone of her voice. -“I’ll walk you” he gallantly offered. She replied: -“Only to the foot of the steps, you can’t go beyond”. He thought that a family member was waiting for her-“maybe her father came to pick her up” as it was usual in that time- he started to go down the stairs and as he saw her still shaking in an act of greater chivalry took off his coat and put it on her, telling her to take it and that he will pick it up the next day, with the double purpose of seeing her again, asking her and getting her address. They said goodbye, and he saw a greater deepness in her beautiful eyes that this time reflected a deep and distant sadness. The next day at an early hour he went to the indicated address, where he was greeted by a friendly but sad-faced woman. When stating that he was looking for a young lady to whom he mentioned by the name that from her lips he heard the night before, describing her with a beautiful white dress, the woman shocked replied that if it was a joke because that young lady was her daughter, but she had passed away three years ago, just when she was about to turn 18 years old and she would wear a dress like that, which they had bought for the event. Giving to the insistence of the young man, he first stepped into the living room of the house and the woman went looking for the dress that she kept in sad memory and a photograph of her. For him, the impact was brutal because that was the face and same dress he had touched with his hands that cold night. To the amazement and disbelief that he continued to show, the mother agreed to join him in the car to the municipal cemetery. When finally arriving at the tomb where there was a cross with her name, the amazement was even greater, this time for both of them, because there on the tombstone! There was the coat of the young man, like covering from the cold to whom was buried there! They say that for many years he came back to La Pergola of Los Mochis. Until one time he no longer came back. However one cold night of the next December, in the distance the figure of a woman was seen with long hair and dressed in white going down the stairs of La Pergola. She came with her head bowed, like walking sad because she went there and didn’t find what she was looking for. Still on the cold nights of December, there are people who affirm to have seen a mysterious and beautiful woman of long hair and dressed in white, wandering the steps of La Pergola de Los Mochis. Well... Why not? If the cemetery is just across the street... a few meters away.

Little Planet How this Virtual Tour was made The experience of making the spherical photograph of Cerro de la Memoria is extraordinary. It’s an icon of the city from which many stories, legends and anecdotes have generated. Many people come daily to contemplate the beautiful landscapes. After reaching the viewpoint the paved road follows to hundreds of people that go up daily as part of their exercise routine, or to enjoy the fresh morning air, or to share a sunset with a partner, or to thank and commend to la Virgen. Truly the beauty and modernity of Los Mochis and the warmth of its people invite you to come back many time.
 
Topolobampo. the place where the rainbow ends. Place where the magic of the elements are combined in a universal symphony: wild land of hills with cactus and pitahayas; Blue sky in the day and stars in the night vault. Below, the village attending the imposing presence of the Bay of Ohuira formed by the waters of the Sea of Cortez, where the most varied and rich species boast that today have been worth the recognition of the world's marine sanctuary There began the utopia of the southeast at the end of the century. The last modern epic and the last attempt of pacific colonization of North America. There Albert Kimsey Owen landed with his group of dreamers in pursuit of the dream that would end in terrible failure and whose descendants of foreign surnames nowadays inhabit the neighboring and progressive city of Los Mochis, founded with the birth of the sugar mill, by another American, Benjamin Francis Johnston, who was crowned by the success his presence in these lands. From this place, the railway engineer Albert Kimsey Owen set out on the back of a mule to trace the route that follows the Chihuahua-Pacific railroad on the natural wonder of the Sierra Madre Occidental passing through the Copper Canyon visited year after year by tourists of all the world. The dream of Owen's utopian socialists coming from the United States of America is now realized. From its docks ferries depart that connect the north of Sinaloa with La Paz, B.C. And huge cargo ships that sail the seas of the world with different destinations. Minerals and thousands and thousands of tons of golden grains travel to distant Africa and Asia. Little known is that in this port in the days of revolutionary Mexico was carried out the first naval combat of the world carried out between the gunboat "Guerrero" and the Biplane "Sonora" manned by Captain Gustavo Salinas assisted by the mechanic Teodoro Madariaga. The world also knows of the richness of the marine fauna of the waters that bathe to Topolobampo. Year after year there are hundreds of boats out there to participate in sports tournaments, being known the hill of El Farallón whose basses are famous for the size and variety of the pieces captured. The prophecy and vision of Albert Kimsey Owen, after sleeping his first night under the stars of Topolobampo in 1872 would remain for posterity when he wrote marveling at the spell of this earth: "I left my blankets and walked among the mountain until arriving at the edge of the beach. What a panorama! A whole enclosed sea! I said to myself: If in the morning I find a deep and secure entrance channel from the Gulf of California, here on this bay, it will be the site of a great metropolitan city. On this sea, where a sail is not found today, the ships of all nations will sail and on these plains many families will live happy. The Australian will come here to meet the European, who will come across the continent by rail from the Atlantic.

The golden hour and the blue hour reflect in these images beautiful colors of different shades, first highlight the yellows and oranges and then the blue and magenta.

It was a fantastic afternoon in mid-January with a bit of cold covering me with a light jacket I could comfortably enjoy.
 
The Culiacan International Marathon, which this year attracted about 3 thousand 500 national and international athletes started at 07:00 o'clock once Governor Mario López Valdez gave the starting signal. With the Edition XXVII made this year, Culiacan Marathon was established as a sports festival and an international fair attractive to athletes, national and international, since also this year received the endorsement of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF, for its acronym in English), so that it is qualifying for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro , Brazil 2016, and for the world of the specialty at Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom, from this year The Mexican athletes who registered less than 2hrs and 15minutes for 42 kilometers in the men's branch, and 2hrs and 35 minutes in the women, got their direct pass to the Olympics to be held next year in Brazil. Meanwhile, for the worldwide championships in that European country, athletes will have a direct pass in the men's branch only if they register a time minor to 1hr 05minutes on the 21 kilometers category, and 1hr 15 minutes in the women's branch. Mexicans Ricardo Ramos Vargas and Brenda Flores Muñoz had no problem due to their extraordinary preparation. The Culiacan International Marathon is considered one of the best in the country, which annually has been increasing the number of participants and contributes to the noble cause that tops the “Grupo Amigos de Niños Afectados con Cáncer” (Friends of Affected Children with Cancer “Ganac”) since this is a "Marathon with cause... a different Marathon.” More than 1,500 volunteers participated at the hydrating stalls and in the event's entertaining area. Thirty thousand bags of water and electrolytes were distributed; 485 security elements participated, 80 0 units and an ambulance of the SSP (Ministry of Public Health) 25 paramedics of the Mexican Red Cross, three ambulances of the infarct code and three motorcycles. In addition, it had the support of 28 members of the police department, three law enforcement vehicles and an ambulance of Civil Protection. The event also received special support from 25 members of the Maniacs Motorcyclists Club and radio systems; as well as with 300 youngsters and the support of the Autonomous University of Sinaloa.

Little Planet How this Virtual Tour was made Some years ago I had the fortune to run this marathon when it still had no International category. The Paynani Club already existed back then and we used it as a gathering point for many athletes. It was fun jogging as a group traveling many roads in our region. I fondly recall the time. That is why it was very exciting for me to make these virtual tours as recognition for the athletes, organizers and especially to all the people of Culiacan that make Culiacan International Marathon a celebration of the city. After stitching the images in PTGui, I sent them to Photoshop PSB format to make corrections by overlapping layers and subsequently through "Artisan" work, with many layers I made final adjustments. The main difficulty is that there were many people on the move, but I liked the final result ... and hopefully you too find it acceptable...

Little Planet http://elcidgolfclub.com.mx/mazatlan/ How was this Virtual Tour made The spherical photo of Marina El Cid was taken at noon with a harsh sunlight. F/11 or even smaller diaphragm apertures give a quite interesting effect in luminous objects as the sun or light bulbs forming starts that beautify the pictures. The shoot on board was complicated because of the shaking, so the stitching in PTGui was made manually by placing some points, due to automatically it was impossible, and then in Photoshop adding layers to make some corrections.
 
Imala is a rural community located at a Town that bears the same name, which belongs to Culiacan. This place is famous due to hot springs there. Its name derives of the Aztec word “Imalacatlán”, which means “water that rolls”. Its history dates back to 1531, when the Spanish conquer Nuño Beltran Guzman sent his captains to explore the rivers from Sinaloa, who moved to different ways on brigades to find a route that connects to Veracruz port and facilitates the access to Sierra Madre Occidental through Sinaloa shores, where they discovered this Town called Imala. In this Town, they gathered large amounts of minerals produced in mines from Villages of Topia and Canelas in Durango, which were carried down on the back of animals from the mountains and then on wagons to be sent to the capital of New Spain. It caused trading activities with Tamazula Town and served as access to different sectors of the mountain range. These hot springs are located in a zone of family entertainment, where can be found leafy green areas, palapas, restaurants, food booths and cabins for rent. The main attraction of the town is the natural hot springs composed of various pools, each one with different heat intensity. The first one that catches the water from the spring is 50° C of temperature. The second attraction, which can be viewed at some kilometers before arriving to Imala, is its church, built of red brick and ocher, with red domes displayed at the top of its tower. Next to the church there is a small square full of mixed vegetation and cobblestoned sidewalks. Around it there are some old buildings, a heritage from the presence of Spanish people when travelled on these lands. Around the town many local products can be found, such as chorizo, bread, panela, cheese and pottery.

Little Planet How was this Virtual Tour made It was a Sunday when my wife and I went to Imala to have a breakfast, it was a sunny day with a very pleasant weather, the food was delicious and people were lovely to tourists. At noon, I made the virtual tour about the beautiful red and ocher church with its domes on the towers and a larger one upon the altar. It caught my attention the gothic and ogival openings on the bell tower and the balustrade pattern at the top of the nave. The light that passed through the stained glass set up beauty lighting.
 
The Malecón of Mazatlán Sinaloa is considered one of the longest in the world, on it can be seen some of the beautiful attractions of Mazatlán just like its beaches, sunsets and the sea. The Malecón Mazatlán from south to north or north to south has a length of twenty- one kilometers, along which can be found monuments , ancient buildings , hotels, restaurants , bars , discos, shops , cinemas, banks , clinics, people, among many other things. For Mazatlecos “natives of Mazatlán” their Malecón is the best place for release stress; they cross it daily and always find a reason to be surprised. In each section of the nine that compose it ( Puntilla- Ferry Pier , Lighthouse, Centennial , Olas Altas , Claussen , Avenida del Mar , Camarónes “Shrimp” Sábalo “chad”, Cerritos, Cerritos-Nuevo Mazatlan ) the different stages of the history of this beautiful tourist destination is reflected. Very early in the morning as well in the evenings there are hundreds of locals and visitors who exercise in any of the sections of the Malecón. In summer the warm season of Mazatlan, entire families take to the Malecon to enjoy the refreshing breeze of summer evenings, visitors join the nice custom. Virtual Reality (VR) Virtual reality images for virtual reality glasses viewing in mobile devices There are no limits to see the world: live the experience by yourself in virtual reality ! Join us ! Little Planet How this Virtual Tour was made Night shots usually require high sharpness in its entirety and the only way to accomplish this is minimizing the opening of the diaphragm, by doing this we increase the depth of the field, normally I like the image depth around f / 8 and f / 11. Of course, this reduction in the flow of light is to be offset by a higher exposure time and/or increased sensitivity in order to obtain a properly expose picture. The time I settled in these photo spheres was half a second to 25 seconds. It was a real pleasure to do the virtual tour and walk at night through the beautiful Malecón of Mazatlán, very clean and bright, the scenery is amazing and many families take the opportunity to go for a walk and enjoy all its attractions. I hope to return soon to continue taking photographs of Mazatlán.
 
One of the busiest and most beautiful avenues in Culiacán is the avenue Alvaro Obregón, colloquially called “La Obregón”. During weekdays thousands of people cross this road from north to south to get to work, school or malls. For this reason, on a drizzling Sunday morning and while the majority of the citizens of Culiacán were still in their houses I took the decision to do a photographic tour by the main buildings of this very important street of the capital of Sinaloa. On the corner of Ciudades Hermanas with Obregón there is a pretty garden, small, well-kept and adorned with palm trees. The people who attend the mass at the Lomita, one of the best known catholic churches in the city dedicated to the Virgin of Guadalupe, and that is located on a hill which possesses a great view of the city and you can get to the park by the its long stairs. This is where we started our photographic tour. By the Obregon, between Leyva Solano Boulevard and Francisco Villa Street, is the sports center Juan S. Millán, which was previously called “Parque Revolución”, it was built more than 50 years ago and where great artistic and sport events were held. Here is where Julio César Chávez made his professional debut as boxer. It is currently the house of the city basketball team, Caballeros de Culiacan. Inaugurated on October 8th, 1842, the building that today hosts the city hall of Culiacán by the avenue Obregón, between Mariano Escobedo and Benito Juárez, meant for the people that lived in the Ville of San Miguel something never seen before, because it was the first two floor building with such a beauty in its construction. At the beginning it was built as the National Tridentine seminary of Sonora and Sinaloa, being one of the most important on the northwest of the country that operated until the Reform war. The building that harbors the City Hall of Culiacán since 1980, was proposed in similarity to the European cloisters, with a main yard surrounded by semicircular arches and rooms all around the perimeter. According to the chronicle of Culiacán, its edification was an odyssey. In 1799, the Bishop from Sonora, Fray Francisco María Rousset de Jesús negotiated with the authorities in charge of the installation of a Seminar School where the priests needed for the parishes from the northwest zone were to graduate. For that, he searched for a location where to build, and he found it a hundred steps south from the local Cathedral, where there was a big orchard and a small hermitage dedicated to San José. The Bishop bought the land with his own money, hired an expert in masonry of last name Flores and the foundations to start the work were opened. The resources were not enough, and 29 years away from the beginning of the project, on May 13th, 1838, under the direction of Lázaro de la Garza and Ballesteros, the seventh bishop of Sonora, the edification continued. After four years, the work was completed, with rocks brought from Mojolo, Imala and Badiraguato, styled by artisans that De la Garza and Ballesteros got from within the country. Its function In different stages of the history of the state, the building was used as a blood hospital in war times, or depositary of administrative offices of the government in peaceful times. In 1917, the governor Ramón F. Iturbe got the federal authorities to agree to give the building to turn it into the Hospice Francisco I. Madero, which gave accommodation, food and education to the children of the deceased in the battlefields of Sinaloa during the Mexican Revolution. There was also established the feminine school Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez, in 1947, which hosted the Normal Urban Evening School, name which made it independent from the Normal School, until 1960, when the governor Gabriel Leyva Velázquez disposed it to work as the Government Palace of the State. When arriving to Angel Flores Street we can see the Cathedral of Saint Michael Archangel, previously known as Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary, which is the headquarters of the diocesan of Culiacán, as well as the most ancient of the city, appearing in records since 1842. On May 12th of that same year the building of it started thanks to the initiative of the seventh Bishop of Sonora and Sinaloa, Lázaro de la Garza y Ballesteros, and was finished in 1855. It has a neoclassic architecture with some strokes of baroque. Its frontage presents different incrustations of pink quarry. On the corner of Obregón and Zaragoza, you can find the Casino of Culiacán, currently the Casino of the Culture. Designed and built in 1943 by the engineer Constantino Haza Peralta, in this building the parties of the best of the society of Culiacán were held during many years. After that it was abandoned for some time and today has been restored to bring back part of its old life. Its style is Art Deco, with some applications a bit more modern that give it great elegance. In the interior of the building a small library is currently running as well as an artisanal exposition, and a gallery with photographs and memories of the carnivals and other parties that have been celebrated in the building along its history. The most ancient bridge built in Culiacán, made in 1904, is the bridge Miguel Hidalgo (Also known before as Cañedo), which links the avenue Álvaro Obregon from the center to the north of the city. It has ramps to both piers. From there Parque las Riberas (Riberas’s park) is visible, located by the Urban Development Tres Rios, by the riveras of the rivers Humaya and Tamazula. It is a space of about 120 hectares with natural characteristics clear to identify because due to its location is now integrated to the urban development and is defined as the public sustainable space for recreation most important of Culiacán. It is a very big park, where people can be spectators of beautiful sunsets and where lots of families go to spend some time outdoors. We concluded our photographic tour at the Civil Hospital of Culiacán, located by Tierra Blanca on Álvaro Obregón Avenue # 1422.The building of this now hospital was built on some piece of land donated by the family Valenzuela during the government of the Ing. Juan de Dios Bátiz in the twenties and the building concluded during the government of the General Macario Gaxiola. The official opening was held on September 16th, 1932 by the governor of that time, Macario Gaxiola, being his first administrator, Doctor Mario Camelo y Vega. It is also important to mention that the Civil Hospital of the State was its name during those days and was the first great construction work done in the health area in Sinaloa by the revolutionary regime.

Little Planet Photo Gallery How this Virtual Tour was made All the tour was made in approximately two hours, despite of the little rain that would make a little difficult some shots. The light with soft shadows generates contrasts and tonalities very pleasant. I was very careful of constantly cleaning the target in order to not have spots out of the drops of rain. For the printing I added a bit more of contrast so the pictures had stronger colors and intense blacks.

And provided on the left bank of headworks and in his right margin, a spillways was built type fan-free crest. The curtain consists essentially of 3 zones of selected materials: 1: waterproof heart formed by a conglomerate of gravel low well graded fine, to improve this material it was added a layer of clay in the surface, modified clay granite (tucuruguay) was also used although in a minor extent and only in the lower parts. 2: backrests formed essentially permeable sand and gravel; It is placed over the heart and has waterproof slope 3: 1 upstream and 2: 1 downstream. 3: Sheet rock quarry formed product was placed by hand with a thickness of 1 m in the upstream slope only. The pourer It is located on the right bank and consists of a fan-type spillway free chalk, curved in plant discharge channel leading the water to the river Tamazula. It has a capacity of 6,300 cubic meters vent / sec, the length is 218.9 m chalk. Intake work It is located on the left bank, consists essentially of two tunnels lined with concrete, in which pressure pipes initially drowned in blocks of concrete and provided with needle valves to regulate withdrawals at the downstream end of the pipes stay Pressure. They downloaded freely on the cause of the river, its operating mechanisms being housed in a concrete shed. In the downstream ends of the tunnels, they grid mounted on reinforced concrete structures of cylindrical shape, which serve as input transition to the tunnels, which are linked through elbow shaped installations.
