Is anyone else reminded of newspaper photos in the Harry Potter universe?
Busy day in Manhattan… but there’s always time for the paper.


Thanks to scrog for the link to an article about these "cinemagraphs," brilliant animated GIFs that consist only mostly of a still image.

The creators' Tumblr feed is already syndicated on LiveJournal at frommetoyou_rss.

Cool!

I probably had a reaction similar to others, "I don't get it. It doesn't look particularly Harry Potteresque to me... WHOA! DID YOU SEE THAT?!" :)

Thanks for sharing, that's neat!

Brilliant! I know just the photo to use for something like this!

Well, one of the first things that came to mind was your Jaden icon. :-)

That's *exactly* what I mentioned it reminded me of when i was showing these pics to Pam last night. :D

I'm really amazed that we haven't been using GIFs like this since the beginning of the web. Seems obvious in retrospect for online magazines and newspapers.
