May 365

I know. I’m quite a bit late for the May monthly sum-up of my 365 project.

Reasons for this are multiple, but I can boil it down to one thing. I’m simply too busy with too many things.

I have tried sorting out things that I felt could wait, the monthly 365 sum-up being one of them. But here it is, and June 365 is well underway. It’s getting tougher getting the shot everyday, but I’m hanging in there.

May saw a couple of MAJOR photographic things.

1: I got served a prototype version of the FUJIFILM X-T10 which was just made available for purchase yesterday. The review I made has seen an off-the-charts traffic surge to the site, and I’m incredibly humbled by it.

2: As if I didn’t get enough attention with the X-T10 review, I even got a chance to write an early review of the Fujinon XF90mm f/2. Its such an amazing lens, and to say I am amazed by it would be the understatement of the century.

The above gear reviews off course made an impact on my 365. But not that much since time with them was limited (I actually got it back in June, but thats another story)

Summer is not really catching on here in Denmark so my images are part rain part sun. Well, enough talk. I’ll just leave you with the pictures, and as usual the outtakes. Metadata can be found in the files if needed 🙂

  1. Just went thru them all last to first…as I have each time you post. Beautiful work is to be found within this series. Respect, Mark

  2. Jonas, I know this is an older post and maybe you’ve covered this somewhere else but this particular photo (the bearded photo, top) made me want to ask about your process. Do you just walk up and quickly take the photo and scurry away? Or do you snap and then talk to the person if they see you? Do you talk to them first? I recently travelled to Cincinnati where there was lots of street life but it was such a different feel than what I am accustom to.

    I was getting dirty staring from almost everybody, a homeless looking guy chased me at one point. It was a very different situation from what I usually experience in places like NYC and Boston. Or maybe I’m just being too sensitive about being outside my comfort zone in a new city, in a different socioeconomic climate and I felt exploitative. Ohio is currently in the midst of a horrible heroin epidemic.

    Anyway, thanks for listening to my rambles. Street photography is a love of mine and I love your use of the medium so I thought I’d pick your brain. Have a great day!
