It was a wonderfully sunny day at the very end of winter, heralding the start of an unusually early spring. Algy perched on a rock in the cool afternoon sunshine and gazed at the waves rolling in to the small bay beneath his cliff-side nest. Masses of cloud were building up over the islands to the north, and Algy knew that the fine weather wouldn’t last long, but he was determined to enjoy every minute of it while he could…

It was such a beautiful scene, on such a lovely day, that Algy persuaded his assistant to quickly make a GIF of it, in time for the wonderful @imiging imigif event on 1st March – the first day of the meteorological spring in the north 🙂

– Cotton grass is one of the more delightful features of the West Highland peat bogs, and Algy is fascinated by it every summer. He loves to sit among the fluffy seedheads and watch them blowing in the wind 🙂                                               Algy made this GIF today especially to celebrate imiging‘s exciting new monthly GIF feature. Algy loves photo-GIFs!

This so charming GIF was especially made by our VIP imiging Club Member for the amazing imigif day n°11 curated by imigingSubmit your own creation to join the party next month. Let’s Gif today!

It’s cotton grass time again, and Algy loves to relax in one of the drier spots in the peat bogs, surrounded by the fragrance of the aromatic bog myrtle, just watching the fluffy seed heads blowing in the wind 🙂

Algy sends a big fluffy hug and his fluffiest thanks to his kind friends @imiging for featuring this GIF in their amazing imigif day earlier this month. He hopes that many more of his friends will join in the fun and create original GIFs from their photographs for the next imigif day on 1st July.

– Algy and his assistant wish all you wonderful people at imiging a very happy 2nd birthday, and Algy sends you lots of very fluffy birthday hugs xoxo

This GIF is from Algy’s own 2nd Tumblr birthday party – and you will notice that for the theme of “two” there are two delicious homemade banana splits, with real homemade ice cream… You will have to share them out between you, but there are also plenty of homemade chocolate brownies 🙂

Happy Birthday and Many Happy Returns Imiging!

The Adventures of Algy

Algy feels that as imiging’s aim is to be the most extreme diverse blog in genres, styles, tastes then it would be difficult for imiging to achieve complete representation of the photographic community without the membership of Tumblr’s unique and surprisingly fluffy bird 🙂
Algy’s adventures in the wild West Highlands of Scotland have appeared on Tumblr in photographic form since March 2012, with posts most days. As the inclusion of a fluffy bird in every photo is so unusual – and to some people, weird – some photo enthusiasts and photo curators have failed to realize that in fact all of this work is original photography 🙂 But that’s what it is – and Algy’s adventures have always included GIFs made from sequences of still photos as well as individual photographs.  
Algy is thrilled that imiging are now recognizing the importance of GIFs made from original photos, and thrilled too that they actively support people trying to make a living from the work they show on Tumblr. Algy’s adventures and the related books and merchandise (soon) are his assistant’s only employment now!
[And for those who don’t know, Algy’s assistant is a human female called Jenny Chapman. At present she uses the mirrorless Panasonic Lumix G6 camera.]

Algy must have been asleep on 6th September 2015, because it seems that on that day he had the honour to be made a member of Club Imiging – and he didn’t know it until today! He hadn’t even seen this selection of images, chosen by the imiging team to represent his adventures.

Thank you so much, dear friends at @imiging – Algy is proud to be a member of your club, and sends you all lots and lots of surprisingly fluffy hugs xoxo

As Algy watched the sun sink down, and waves of darkness stole quietly across the loch, he began to observe a strangely hypnotic phenomenon. Of course he was exceedingly tired after his arduous flight along the river, and the light in the gloaming is always tricky and apt to deceive. It’s only too easy to imagine that you are seeing strange things when twilight falls in the West Highlands, even if you are wide awake. Nevertheless, it seemed to Algy that all was not entirely as he might have expected it to be… He was too exhausted to remain alert, or even to stay awake for longer than a few moments at a time, but as he dozed to the rhythm of the flickering light, he wondered drowsily whether it was really entirely wise to fall asleep at this time…

This GIF was selected for the amazing imigif day curated by imiging. Submit your own creation to join the party next month. GIF it to us!

As many of Algy’s friends will know, Algy has always been very keen on animated GIFs, and many of his adventures have appeared as GIFs. So he was really delighted to discover today that one of the major photo curation blogs imiging was starting a monthly celebration of GIFs on the 1st day of each month. Algy feels that GIFs made from original photography have too often been ignored by the photographic community – GIFs are photographs too! At least they are the way Algy makes them – from a series of still photos.

So Algy is very pleased with imiging 🙂 And he is looking forward very much to seeing all the other wonderful GIFs that they post each month.

Of course Algy was even more thrilled to find (later in the day) that imiging had chosen one of his GIFs to include in their own selection to launch this exciting new monthly feature.

Algy sends fluffy thanks and lots of fluffy hugs to his friends at imiging xoxo
