My favorite genre of photography is currently street photography - and the Fujifilm X100T with its fixed 35mm f/2 lens is ideal for my kind of street work. I bought my X100T from Amazon about six m...

Great write-up. I've been shooting with the X100T as well and have been really enjoying it.

For street, I typically use the EVF with Classic Chrome, f/8, 1/250 sec., and auto ISO up to 3200. I switch between MF and AF depending on the lighting conditions. I shoot RAW and usually with convert to B&W in post, but I do like the Classic Chrome in the viewfinder :)

I also wish they'd allow a 1/250 sec. min shutter speed, and I wish they'd make the distance scale a little easier to read. Those blue lines are rather tiny.

Fine Arts Photographer - Menlo Park, California
Introduction
Stare. It is the way to educate your eye, and more. Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long. - Walker Evans, 1960

Follow my personal blog: http://sjl.us

My passion is photography - having picked up a decent DSLR about 5 years ago that re-kindled an earlier love for the art.  I have an eclectic range of interests and subjects as I continue to explore the wonder of capturing these little moments in time.  See my personal portfolio for the images I consider my best.

I'm also co-founder, sometime photographer and chief engineer for InMenlo.com, a hyperlocal news and features site for the communities of Menlo Park and Atherton, California.

In my "day job", I'm a founding partner of Glenbrook Partners, a payments consulting firm based in Menlo Park, California. Glenbrook provides a range of strategy consulting and educational resources to payments professionals worldwide.

You can find out more about my professional background here and my other interests on my personal blog.  I also like to cook - mostly simple and fun stuff - my recipe blog is Scott's Kitchen.

Everything worth photographing is in California. - Edward Weston

Su Hong to Go is a long-time Menlo Park mainstay and favorite spot of mine for lunch The Chinese Chicken Salad is one of my favorites. Call 10 minutes ahead and pick up when you arrive. There are a few tables to eat in - nothing fancy - but mostly this is a take out/home restaurant.
