MACY'S Brooklyn, Fulton Street Furniture Dept.

Last week MACY'S located at 422 Fulton Street in downtown Brooklyn completely renovated their Furniture Department which is in the lower level of the store.
I was asked to photograph parts of Brooklyn so the photos can be used as large mural type photos from sizes of 13' x 10' up to a skyline panorama photo which is over 50' long. We used 3 photos, Brooklyn Bridge, the front of a Brownstone and the Manhattan view from Williamsburg

These are the photos of the 3 murals in the store...

Sun Halo today in New York City...

Today in New York was an amazing Sun Halo which is very unusual to see.


Here is the meaning...
What makes a halo around the sun or moon?

Halos around the moon – or sun – are a sign of thin cirrus clouds drifting high above our heads. They are a sign of nearby storms.

A ring or circle of light around the sun or moon is 

called a halo by scientists. We get many messages

throughout each year from people who’ve just

spotted a ring around the sun or moon. The night

before Hurricane Sandy made landfall on the U.S.

mainland on October 29, 2012, for example, many

throughout the U.S. saw a lunar halo. Another rash of 

lunar halos in the U.S. began to appear shortly before 

Christmas 2012. Solar and lunar haloes are pretty 

common, but they’re so mysterious-looking that 

people often express amazement upon seeing them.

Yahoo NEWS Photo Gallery...Mind Bending Photos:Wonders of the World

Mailonline a UK news service printed an article about my Tilt Shift Photos on May 2nd. Once that was online I was contacted by Focus Magazine, a German news magazine and also YAHOO about posting my work online. Since Yahoo has posted the article at this point in time I am the #1 Most Popular News Photo Gallery Slideshow with the potential to be Featured on their Front Page.

Here is the link to the Mail Online article...

     Here is the link to the YAHOO    

This is the description in the article from YAHOO...

"Richard Silver's photographs show us the world's biggest sights like Machu Picchu in Peru or Copacabana in Brazil. His photos, however, are not simply depictions of the landmarks but planned, artistic visual constructions that, with their playful combinations of sharpness and blur, create new worlds of experience. Silver says:"People always aske 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 and I enjoy the power to change the perspective of the way people look at the world and maybe at themselves." "
