Amy Lowell

They have watered the street,
It shines in the glare of lamps,
Cold, white lamps,
And lies
Like a slow-moving river,
Barred with silver and black.
Cabs go down it,
And then another.
Between them I hear the shuffling of feet.
Tramps doze on the window-ledges,
Night-walkers pass along the sidewalks.
The city is squalid and sinister,
With the silver-barred street in the midst,
A river leading nowhere.

Opposite my window,
The moon cuts,
Clear and round,
Through the plum-coloured night.
She cannot light the city;
It is too bright.
It has white lamps,
And glitters coldly.

I stand in the window and watch the moon.
She is thin and lustreless,
But I love her.
I know the moon,
And this is an alien city.

The 256-color GIF format has been around since the early days of the Internet but these animated images have taken an interesting turn lately. Cinemagraphs look like still photos but actually feature a subtle area of movement designed to grab your eye and keep you looking. The effect is slightly eerie but quite captivating. Photographer, Fernando J Baez, describes the technique as "more than a photo, but not quite a video."
Here I've compiled a collection of, 25 or so, great examples of the cinemagraph technique for you to enjoy.
