Photographer's Note

Cole Sear: I see dead people.
Malcolm Crowe: In your dreams?
[Cole shakes his head no]
Malcolm Crowe: While you're awake?
[Cole nods]
Malcolm Crowe: Dead people like, in graves? In coffins?
Cole Sear: Walking around like regular people. They don't see each other. They only see what they want to see. They don't know they're dead.
Malcolm Crowe: How often do you see them?
Cole Sear: All the time. They're everywhere.

The Sixth Sense is a 1999 psychological horror film written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan. It tells the story of Cole Sear, a troubled, isolated boy (Haley Joel Osment) who claims to be able to see and talk to the dead, and an equally troubled child psychologist (Bruce Willis) who tries to help him. The film established Shyamalan as a writer and director, and introduced the cinema public to his signatures, most notably his affinity for twist endings. The film was nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

Last post for a while since Monday morning, I'll go to Paris.

My new camera was getting covered with dust, so I decided to go for a walk to BCC (Belém Cultural Center) museum and try some shots to know if everything was working properly for my next trip.
This shot of reflections was taken in one of the corridors that connects diferent exhibitions of the museum.
Reflections on windows have the ability to show paralel worlds, other dimensions and sometimes we are lucky enough to see it for a split second.
I played a bit with the tones in this monochromatic version.

WS - color version.


The Belém Cultural Center (CCB - Centro Cultural de Belém), located in the Belém quarter of Lisbon, is the largest building with cultural facilities in Portugal. CCB includes very complex areas such as an auditorium for opera, ballet, symphony concerts and congresses, high security meeting halls, and a 7,000 m² exhibition area. Also located in CCB is the Jacques Delors European Information Center.
The Belém Cultural Center has 140,000 m² of construction area and was prepared in a very short period (1989-1992). The client of the project was the Portuguese State through the Secretaria de Estado da Cultura (State Agency for Culture). Completed in 1992, it occupies a total of 100,000 m² and is the work of architects Vittorio Gregotti and Manuel Salgado; the interior was planned by Daciano Costa.
With highly sophisticated equipment and a wide variety of installed services, it has several areas with different roles:
• The Conference Area provides a close link with the most varied business and professional sectors
• The Entertainment Area is equipped with two Auditoriums and a Rehearsal Room with 72 places
• The Exhibition Area has ample spaces and galleries for exhibition of plastic arts, architecture, photography, and design
• The Educational Area provides a close link between the Foundation and schools of various levels as well as other institutions
• The Formation Area is a service of the Foundation of the Belém Cultural Center; courses, seminars and Conferences are directed towards formation in professionalism and aim at modernisation, acquisition of further knowledge skills and specialisation in the different areas of the arts, and culture.
