Little Planet Panoramic Photography How this virtual tour was made This virtual tour took place in two stages, the first on Tuesday, October 20 very early, at 6:25 am using a stick three meters high for a semi aerial photography. I remember there was a party atmosphere, many people had spent the night queuing up to buy tickets just to see our baseball team, it seemed no one was sleepy and tired. I got the light for this photograph during the golden hour, there were many clouds with a yellow to orange produce very nice effects in the shadows and lights of the stadium. At night we attended my Consuegro Luis Amarante and our children to the game between the Tomateros and the Eagles of Mexicali, where I did not lose the opportunity and carry out the second stage of photographs. The fact that the stadium is impressive, very comfortable, the building is majestic, the work done by Arch. Jacobo Sevilla and his team is really bright. A stadium to be proud of and we must presume worldwide.
With its main square surrounded by historic buildings and adorned by the Church of the Immaculate Conception, which is an architectural jewel finished in the seventeenth century and was started to be built by the Indians in 1594 at the initiative of the Jesuits.

Little Planet How this virtual tour was made A fellow photographer was wondering if the blue hour was only at dawn, when the sky takes on this very nice tone after the darkness of the night, the interesting thing is that also in the afternoon before the last light of the day is finished it gets that semi dark color that stands out with artificial lights of buildings. So I was able to make this virtual tour of the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Mocorito, a temple that they have very clean and well maintained and is visited by parishioners and tourists who visit this beautiful magical town.
The favorite place in each town is their Plaza (small open space in which the town’s festivities take place). Mocorito’s Plaza construction started in 1900 and it was inaugurated under the name of “Hidalgo” in September 16, 1902. 10 handcarts full of human bones were dug from there due to Spanish religious custom, which was that the burial should be on the churchyards or on the fields near the church. At Mocorito “Magic Town”, there are old houses and buildings that own a historical significance. At Mocorito “Magic Town”, there are old houses and buildings that own a historical significance.Among the most important is Mocorito’s Church, preceded by an adobe chapel built by Spanish people. This chapel had to be destroyed to start with the construction of a more stable church under the work of Indian people and it was finished until the 17th century. Due to that, it possesses mix-style architecture: the center of the facade is built of quarry, and the rest of the front part, including the tower, is built of brick. Inside of the church, there are 14 pictures that date back to the 16th century, which represent the ViaCrucis, these have existed for over 400 years. The Town possesses other buildings that date back to the same period, which are the churches of Capirato and Comanito. Mocorito has given the example of important historical figures, such as Mrs. Agustina Ramírez, Mr.Eustaquio Buelna and General Rafael Buelna Tenorio.

Little Plantet How this virtual tour was made These pictures were taken at 7:00 p.m. at the blue hour, the last moment with light on the sky. There was a family atmosphere at Hidalgo’s Plaza. For those people who like watching sports, there were some volleyball courts where they could enjoy watching some games. Music was listened everywhere. The visitants’ sight and smell were sweetened with traditional handcrafts and candies, making it an unrepeatable, nice Friday evening. Mocorito’s beauty and its architecture, handcraft and gastronomy’s richness are the perfect excuse to visit the Magic Town.
A few weeks ago I along with a group of married friends stayed in the village of Mocorito, located just an hour and a half from Culiacan and we stayed at the Hotel "Boutique La Cuarteria", located in the street Francisco I. Madero #67 and the corner of Benito Juarez Street, in the Historic Center. The building in which is located was built early in the last century and Don Jose Sabas de la Mora in 1906 established a printing press, where in June 30th, 1903 began with the publication of the newspaper "Voz del Norte". We were also told that in July 1st, 1907 the magazine “Arte” was released, it was one of the publications of most significance of Sinaloa writers. It was directed by Enrique González Martínez and Sixto Osuna. “Arte” was one of the most cosmopolitan and contemporary magazines of the porfiriato in Mexico, publishing in its pages Mexican writers, French, Italians, Swedes, Poles, Spaniards, Americans, Argentines, Venezuelans, Colombians, Hondurans, Nicaraguans, Guatemalans and Cubans.

Join us ! Little Planet How this Virtual Tour was made There is a large window in the dining room and the roof has a transparent cover and to prevent the pictures from coming out "burned" (overexposed), I decided to make the virtual tour very early to take the blue hour and that is why we have that nice color. As you may have seen, my favorite time to take the photo sphere shots is the blue and golden hour, which are achieved in the first and last light hours of the day. We were very happy in Mocorito, its people are very friendly and treat tourists with great hospitality. We visited some communities around where we could enjoyed delicious regional sweets. Hotel La Cuarteria in Mocorito ... highly recommended!
“Las Riberas” park is located at the Tamazula river bank, next to Culiacan center and in front of the “Orabá” island.

Little Planet Photo Gallery How this virtual tour was made This picture was taken in October 15th at 8:19 pm, at the blue hour, which is the last minute with light on the sky. To make some night pictures look prettier, the sky should not be black, but slightly blue, and to be there at the exact hour I used an app in my iPhone called “Photopills”, which indicates the hour at which the blue and golden hour start and end. This app also allows us to see the movement of the sun and the moon. If you have ever seen pictures of the moon by a church or any other building, it is not because the photographer was lucky. With Photopills, you can know the place, date and time in which the moon will be in a particular position in order for us to program the photo shooting.

Its structure is composed of three naves covered by a metallic surface; with in the facade of the building you can observe traces of eclectic and neoclassical architectural building of the 20th century.

History Built in the revolutionary period, exactly were the market square had previously been, which by agreement of the City Council on March 12, 1839, the project was soon ordered to go underway forming a square structure. This may have been done with some type of material leaving large entries. The square market that appears already reflected in Culiacan topography in 1861. Due to the new reforms that were underway in the 19th century new building typologies emerged, therefore by the end of that period it had already been warned about the need of construction of a public market for Culiacan, materializing the idea in the beginning of 1910.

Little Planet How this virtual tour was made The day I made these spherical photographic images I was walking down the street General Angel Flores towards the parking lot where I had left my car, suddenly it started raining and I ran into Garmendia Market so I wouldn’t get wet. I had not been to the market for many years, I was surprised to see how nice it was. You can notice a very cheerful atmosphere, and the aromas of food from the restaurants are delicious. Seeing the colors of the fruits, vegetables, the freshness of meat and fish and many other products that are sold there and especially the enthusiasm with which these people work selling their regional products, I wanted to make these images that reflect the effort that every day is carried out by these sinaloenses, which we should feel very proud of.
