The Jewish Cemetery / Prague

The Old Jewish Cemetery is not the first Jewish cemetery in Prague – its predecessor was so-called “Jewish Garden“ located in the area of present New Town of Prague.

The wonders of Plotagraph

For years now, the easiest and almost only way to create animated images was to make animated GIFs.

The major difference with the previous tools is the almost perfect looping...
