I am hugely entertained by Google's GIF creations from my existing photographs. Somehow they make some quite mundane photos look really good. After I discovered Google did this, I started shooting batches of photos. Clearly all these GIFs take a long time to download - particularly on slower connections but I like them and I'm going to be very sparing with their use.
The whole animated images thing gives me lots of new ideas for my photography. It lends it a whole new lease of life. It's like short videos without having to bother doing video. The only trick is to remain still while taking a series of photos, if subsequent animation is desired.
