For those who were in my circles and are being circled again by me, I'm switching over from my gmail profile to my Google Apps account profile. When Google+ first started it wasn't available to apps users which meant a lot of extra logging in and out of Google accounts when using e-mail and Google+ on the same computer.
Google added apps account support some time ago, but I haven't gotten around to fully making the switch until now.
The theme for week 1 of the +GPLUS::P52::2012 project is "New Years Eve/Day".
Among other things, new year's day means Christmas decorations go back into storage until next year. I took the opportunity to take a picture of our simple little nativity scene before packing it away.
In the picture I chose to use a very limited depth of field to try to place the focus where it belongs, on Jesus. You'll notice that the three wisemen in the back are extremely out of focus. My thinking here is that the wise men weren't at the nativity, but rather visited Jesus at his home when he was very young. With this in mind, I placed them far out of focus rather then just removing them from the scene.
