I ganked this meme from jlrpuck . Finally. After everyone else in the universe already had fun with it. Congratulations, jlrpuck - you finally convinced me to do it, too, with your eloquent ... uh ... eloquence. Yeah, that's it. Thanks!
- Anyone who looks at this entry has to can post this meme and their current wallpaper at their livejournal.
- Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!
- Explain in five sentences or less why you are using that wallpaper.
Here she is: I don't know who may first have created this beauty, an imaginative enlargement on Claude Monet's "Garden Parth at Giverney," although I credit someone called fanbot,* from whom I originally ganked it. It's gorgeous in concept (of course one of the Doctors would have loved this place, and perhaps talked to Monet about light and perception); it's gorgeous in application, too - while it's not a perfect fit, (the shadows on the TARDIS door are lovely and lovingly done but too obviously just computer extrapolations of the shadows behind and beyond it on the path) it's as close as need be. It's Monet's genius that makes me feel as if I could walk into the mid-afternoon sun and sleepy scented air of that garden. It's fanbot's introduction of the Whoniverse that makes me think the garden could take me anywhere. I normally change my wallpaper every second day or so, because I have about 1,000 or so to play with (mostly, but not all by any extent, motivators from TWoP), but this** has been up for several days because it's gorgeous.
* If any of y'all out there know the proper provenance of this, let me know, and I'll properly credit.
**Also, it's not properly a wallpaper, since I simply grabbed this from my icon folder. It was obviously bigger on the inside.
