Jamie Beck at From Me to You combines high-end editorial photography with subtle animation to intriguing and elegant effect (animation by Kevin Burg), dubbing the resulting images ‘cinemagraphs’. Meanwhile, tumblr-du-jour If we don’t, remember me takes vignettes from classic movies and seamlessly loops the frame.

It’s fun to make your own, as well! I did the one above using bits of this tutorial – but I used a series of photos taken on my camera’s burst mode instead of movie frames.
