Miguel Angel Victoria Fotógrafo

It took approximately 20 months to construct the Administrative Unit, which jointly with the urbanized bordering areas shapes the Center Sinaloa.
It was the urban regeneration of an area inhabited by hundreds of families, the improvement of the conditions of roads and traffic, a new load terminal for the railroad.
The Administrative Unit was a part of the whole process of Administrative reform-oriented so that the public ́s errands be more efficient.

On October 5th, 1978, Governor Alfonso G. Caldron gave the signal that started a work which went beyond the intention of a better public administration, since it had happened to turn into a detonator of the urban development of our Culiacán

On October 5th, 1978, the works on the Administrative Unit were finally started; that day in front of a numerous attendance of representatives of the sectors of the active life of Sinaloa. Governor Alfonso G. Caldron gave the signal that started a work which went beyond the intention of a better public administration, since it had happened to turn into a detonator of the urban development of our Culiacán and to its completion a symbol that the capital of Sinaloa well deserves.
The set of the Administrative Unit was built on an entire surface including the levels of the buildings of 140,785 m2. To which they limit to the north the avenida de los Insurgentes, long route of circulation that it has eight rails and a central ridge. The same that also it serves as one more step for the traffic of vehicles of the east and center of the City towards the agricultural Culiacán Valley. On the south, there is the avenue Lázaro Cárdenas which is another route of access to the Unit and upon reaching the street Nicolás Bravo connects the south of the city with the Executive and Judicial powers. The Unit remains also limited by two little streets; Aguilar Barraza to the east and 16 de Septiembre to the west.
The constructed area in the Palace of the Executive power is 65,873 m2, a building that has five levels that occupy a surface level on the soil of 14,440 M2.
The main entry leads to the east precisely to the civic square and has counts with three accesses, one on the Avenida de los Insurgentes and the other to the street 16 de Septiembre. Ending in another public square, this one of fewer dimensions and that also gives access to the Palace of the Supreme Court of Justice and finally the access to Lázaro Cárdenas.
The building has a balcony on the west side of the same one and at the height of the fourth level; where the bell is located; copy from the one that the priest Miguel Hidalgo rang to call the people of Mexico to fight for its independence.
The building has a central courtyard of 1,500 meters of surface area that allows lighting at each level and provides the colonial touch that these interior spaces give.

The public square called Plaza of the Republic has an area of 11,500 M2 with a quota of 45,000 people who can now enjoy its patriotic fervor in more appropriate conditions.

When we go out to photograph it is important to have clear what type of light we need to get the picture that we have in mind, so choosing the right time of day is critical.
One of the moments where the light brings great prominence to the photos is the “golden hour,” whose warm and soft light creates an atmosphere that we would always like to have. However, what happens next? The response is the blue hour.
The blue hour, as its name indicates, is that time just after (in the case of sunset) of the golden hour, when the sky has practically lost those orange and yellow tones and an intense blue begins to dominate. A characteristic of the blue hour is that by the horizon where the (or has left) the Sun was, we have a gradient tonal blue to orange.
The blue of the sky is darkening little by little so that it is mandatory to have a tripod to be able to make pictures. To our eyes it even seems like the night, however, with an exhibition of several seconds we can see that there is still enough light in the sky to be able to continue taking pictures.
This time it is very useful to take some pictures that cannot be carried out at any time of the day with optimal results.
