2 Months with the Fujifilm X100F

I still have the original x100. It’s a camera I hold onto dearly.

I’ve had a copy of the x100F since early November. During that time I kind of made it my go-to camera for just about anything and everything—from my more artistic professional shots, to travel, to basic family vacation images. This camera has been everywhere—from around my own home in Kentucky, to the Great Wall of China, to Disney World in Florida.

Bowser was named after this spicy Korean rice and soup dish

A few things come to mind when I think of iconic Super Mario villain Bowser: Mr. steal-your-girl; a roided-up turtle that just discovered Hot Topic; Great dad . Now I can add Korean rice and soup delicacy gukbap to that list. According to this 2000 Famitsu interview with Shigeru Miyamoto, Bowser was given the Japanese name Daimaō Kuppa — Kuppa being the Japanese name for gukbap , a Korean dish.
