Hi TE friends

Another picture of TE meeting of Lisbon in 27th of February. This picture was taken inside of CCB, in the way to the photography exhibition.

In the WS you can see 2 pictures with the people in the meeting

Have a nice day !

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

Bonjour, cher Aires,
J'aime beaucoup cette composition très graphique d'une volée de marches.
L'architecte a su utiliser avec talent la mise en oeuvre de cette entrée.
Très bonne observation.

Simple, elegante, muy buena fotografia. La arquitectura del CCB es muy interesante.


Olá amigo !

It is incredible what can be drawn from such a tool (and mind , that´s more important) ...Sometimes one has to have an abstract idea of a picture in his mind , an in-bred ability to abstract figures and play with concepts , thoughts , shapes ...I´m enjoying a lot your CCB series and it proves one good picture can be shot beyond the bad weather , the sparse lights and thinks like this ...

I hope you and Cidalia are well and hoping you bought soon your tickets to Bcn where we wait for you

Um abraço !


Ps : how can i do to add a picture to the theme Lisbon TE meeting ?

Hi Aires,
nice geometric composition. Very well seen and caught.
Have a good weekend,

salut aires
super graphisme dans cette photo avec une lumiére bien équilibrée du bon travail

Oi Aires!
Uma linda foto!
Composição minimalista porém com formas geométricas, ocres e texturas que caíram muito bem juntas, deixando essa imagem muito atraente, agradável e bela!
Parabéns, abraços e até logo!

Olá Aires,
esta composición tiene un bonito grafismo, gracias al encuadre en un ángulo cerrado, a la fantástica geometría de líneas y curvas de las paredes y la escalera, y a los vivos colores y texturas de los elementos.
El conjunto es armónico y nos ofrece una gran fuerza visual.
Buen trabajo.
Um abraço,

Une composition élégante et graphique avec une belle association de couleurs. Belle photo!

Olá Aires,
curiosa essa captura, gostei da limpeza da foto e das formas e cores. Belo trabalho.
Parabéns e Abraço

Good evening Aires.
Very nice, simple but fantastically composed image. A few simple architectural elements created here a very interesting subject for photography. Pure geometry in pure colors.
Have a good Sunday,
