Theme Thursday - Mirror

Water is a great mirror!

The lights on Goat Island reflected in Newport Harbor.


Newport Harbor on a still, cold, late Autumn day.


A reflective Gooseneck Cove.


Candles and water.

Two videos this week. The first is my favorite mirror song - The English Beat playing their 1979 hit "Mirror in the Bathroom".


The second video is "Mirror" by the Supreme Beings of Leisure, who have carried the '80s pop/rock aesthetic into the 21st Century. These folks are well worth listening to. Enjoy!

  6. Wow...

    You need to see Crescent Lake out here on the Olympic Peninsula... crystal clear, smooth as glass. Reminds me of this...

  10. My husband and I visited Newport for the first time in September, right after we'd gone to the US Open. We wanted to see the original site of the National/Open and we stayed at the Marriott on that harbor. It is nice to see your lovely photographs which remind me of our stay.

  16. great shots(Newport's on my list) and loved the music--mirror in the bathroom --the dance steps reminded me of Devo and loved the sax! Supreme Beings opening shots of Mirror are so telling all those little bottles promising the fountain of youth--"you know you got to try it, you have to buy it..."

    Great post! Happy TT-c
