Richard Silver’s photos of the world’s biggest sights are special because he uses artistic visual constructions like the combinations of sharpness and blur.

He wrote that, “By employing techniques such as Tilt Shift, HDR, Vertical Panoramas and Time Slice, this allows me to grow as a photographer while exposing our everyday world in an altered visual context.”

Silver says:

“People always ask me, How do I make people look so small or why do I make people look so small? Simple, WE ARE. In the big picture we are just a small blip of what the world truly is. I enjoy the power I have to change the perspective of the way people look at the world and maybe at themselves.”

Powerful Earthquake Struck Chile

Another major earthquake happened  just after a 7.0 earthquake hit Okinawa.

A magnitude 8.8 earthquake hit central Chile early Saturday.

Chile is in South America.

At least 6 people were killed.

This is a very powerful earthquake.

May be more people were killed.

The earthquake was located near the city of Concepcion.

Concepcion is the second largest city in Chile.

The city is 212 miles (341km) from capital Santiago.

The earthquake struck at 3:34 am (1:34am ET).

There are reports of collapsed building in Santiago.

So far CNN has not reported the destruction in Conception.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a tsunami warning for Chile and Peru.

Tsunami watch has been issued for Ecuador, Colombia, Panama and Costa Rica.

The center recorded a tsunami wave as high as 9 feet.

According to USGS the largest earthquake in the world was recorded in Chile.

It happened on May 22, 1960 with a magnitude of 9.5 killing 1665 people.

This is a real disaster and I am very sad to learn about this news.

I hope that we can stop the earthquakes.
