a friend of mine celebrated his birthday this year with some indoor sports — air hockey, billiards, but mostly ping-pong. the thing you realize after taking a bunch of photos of people playing ping-pong is that the stills aren't so interesting on their own but flipping through them quickly more closely approximates the amusement.
lately the animated gif film blog if we don't remember me has proven that the often-maligned format can produce amazing results when done well. so it didn't take long to open the long-neglected animation panel in photoshop and get things moving.
note: large images will take a little longer than usual to load
