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.

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.
