Working on the water, I am very accustomed to working with reflections. But on Thames Street in Newport, I had the opportunity to work with another form of reflection. I was able to photograph flowers through a reflective window.
In Physics, we know this as the angle of light incidence is the same as the angle of reflection. In art, viewing through a window is a time-honored technique. Edward Hopper and Nighthawks come to mind.
Coming back to the moment, this is a great metaphor for life in Newport. Looking in at the scene in a restaurant while life continues to move outside.
