So here you have it, folks! 30 different images and quotes. To celebrate, I invite you to enter the giveaway to win one of the images featured in my Scenic Sunday posts. Details after the break.

I am a Whovian. I’m not sure I’ve said that enough so here I am screaming it from the top of the TARDIS. The one episode that I’ve watched the most is “Vincent and the Doctor.” It’s an absolutely heartbreaking and heart lifting episode. I would also say it is one episode any one can watch; you don’t have to have a wide understanding of the Doctor Who canon. Just know that Amy has experienced a devastating loss which she doesn’t remember and the Doctor is doing everything in his power to make her happy again. This involves a trip back in time to visit Vincent van Gogh.

And yes, I did take this picture at the Farmer’s Market with this episode in mind. And yes, I did create my own quote image from it and it is hanging in my office at work.

“It seems to me there’s so much more to the world than the average eye is allowed to see. I believe, if you look hard, there are more wonders in this universe than you could ever have dreamt of.”

Vincent van Gogh in “Vincent and the Doctor”, Doctor Who, Series 5, Episode 10.

  1. Van Gogh was a visionary artist. I have always loved how he was portrayed in Kurosawa’s DREAMS. Some of his work is less vibrant and yet he still spoke to us clearly.

    • Thanks, Nicole. The sunflowers always make think of summer!

      PS You did fine indicating which image is your favorite.

  2. Ah I love this one too! And the quote, as usual, is perfect! It makes it feel like it really and truly is spring! And thanks so much for the giveaway too, I will definitely be entering, I adore your pictures 🙂 The hard part is picking a favorite!

  3. So many beautiful pictures, it’s hard to pick 1… But I think I’d go with the black and white of the tulip.

    So I haven’t gotten into dr. Who yet. I saw one episode and it didn’t grab me. I’m not a sci-fi person as much as a fantasy one…

    Another beautiful shot. I absolutely adore that episode, I cry every single time. I’ve long had a copy of Starry Night hanging above my bed and Van Gogh is one of my favorite artists, but not just because of his work…because of what he went through. I just understand some of the mental anguish he dealt with and I hurt for him and the lack of help available at the time. At any rate, I definitely love the shot and I’m entering the giveaway with that one in mind. 🙂
