Hitting the Streets with my X100s

So I recently made the switch back to shooting Fujifilm. This is now the second time I have left Fuji only to come back. I made the decision for reasons that are kinda hard for me to explain. It's mostly a feeling thing. The image quality isn't necessarily better (though it is very good), they aren't the fastest cameras ever, but they just feel good to use. I am not sure that I would have even wanted to venture out and capture these images had I not had an X100s in my hand. There is something about them that inspires me to go take pictures and that is better than any "feature" a camera can have. 

These photos below are some of my first attempts at street photography...whatever that is. My goal was just to capture a little bit of Denver. I want to get better at photographing people, it still makes me very nervous, but it takes practice. 

I used my X100s with both the wide and the tele converters. I was actually really impressed with them. The quality through the converters was amazing and it kinda turns the X100s into its own little system.

My Neighborhood

Today I started a new photo project. It's one I have kinda wanted to do for a long time. I am simply calling it My Neighborhood. I was partially inspired by Matthew McCord who is doing a project documenting his whole town. I decided to make mine smaller and only capture my neighborhood. I am limiting myself to between the blocks of 112th to 120th, and Washington to Claude. Since we will probably move out of the neighborhood to get our own place in the next year or so it makes the project limited, which I actually really like. It gives me a goal and an end date. I really wanted to be specific on this project so I am also limiting myself to a certain camera, lens, and Lightroom preset. This will maintain consistency but also creatively stretch myself as I have to work within the restrictions. 

I hope you enjoy it and I would love to see if you have a similar project going. My first four photos from the project are posted in this post and you can view the rest of the project in the gallery.
