I’m a man of my generation (almost) so it probably comes as no surprise to anyone that I would enjoy to communicate with my friends, family and even strangers online through the wonderful medium of GIFs.
I’ve watched over the years gifs turn from simple hand-drawn, low frame, high dither animations to glorious, glossy, almost video like clips from popular TV shows and films. There are plenty of repositories around the world wide web for these invaluable mini-clips that contain thousands if not millions of entries made by themselves, by fans or, surprising enough, the production companies themselves.
However even though there are millions out there, sometimes you just can’t find the one you want. So here we are; in a predicament where you know the GIF you want in your head but it doesn’t exist. Fear not, there are plenty of ways out there to make a GIF for free, some much better than others (quick tip, you don’t need to download any software to achieve this); however even doing so and then uploading it to one of the mega-collections that fuel messaging services such as Facebook, Discord, WhatsApp and Slack, may mean your hard work gets lost in the wash.
For this reason I am reasonably precious about GIFs that I create, so much so that I have also decided to upload them here – somewhere where if I ever reached a million clips I would probably either be a) eternal, b) subject to some kind of mass hack or c) on some strange personal journey to create a business focusing on these tiny digital masterpieces. Also it just makes it easier for me to find them if I end up losing them.

On 14th April 2017 6two1 in Colchester had an open day inviting various fans of the brand/YouTube Channel to come down and show off their cars. Sadly at this point I had nothing interesting to demonstrate, but took a few photographs.
This was one of my favourite shows of the year, if not one of my favourite of all time. I grew up playing rally video games as a kid and thought rally cars were the coolest thing (and still do). This day out was a fantastic time to watch some of these legendary cars going up and down the hill climb, all while being able to get up close and personal with the cars in the paddocks. Aside from the rally legends, there were a few other interesting cars present on the day.
A post that is a tribute to those few moments (or sometimes gruelling minutes on slow systems!) where you are greeted by a nice high-colour picture introducing the software you are about to run or install – often with fancy effects that add unobtainable levels of awesome within the actual software.
