I used to toy around with photography (still do sometimes).

Here's one of my favorites, from a trip to Jacksonville, FL, I took a few years back.

Mine is Christmas light reflecting on a rainy street.

Very nice! Mine is a reflection of the light in the St. John's River as it goes through downtown Jacksonville.

Here's a shot I took of the city skyline:

The first shot I posted comes from right around the reflection near the left side of the bridge.

Howbout a Tebow!

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.
