New camera and new workings

Posted in Uncategorized by petegent on March 13, 2009

I recently acquired from ebay a new canon d350 DSLR after relying for many years on my sturdy phone camera. Huzzah! – now I have to work out how the hell the thing works.

Perhaps you guys can suggest some good tutorials for me to brush up on my dslr skills?

In the meantime you can chck out my “experimental” photo sets on my flikr photo stream (to the right or http://flikr.com/photos/peter_gent. Hopefully I’ll be updating it with lots of pics from my travels across south america, or at least until it gets lost / stolen or I get mugged or kidnapped.

Ciao.

Rejection, rejection and more rejection

Posted in Uncategorized by petegent on February 24, 2009

So i’ve spent the last few weeks writing a 1500 word essay on “the relationship between development and food security”. As it turns out the quality of my essay was shit and I haven’t been accepted onto the degree course. GAH

Now I have to do the access course for a year like some kind of plebion. meh. *angry*

Still, if I’m going traveling this year perhaps I should skip uni or whatever until sep 2010. But when I get out of there I’m gonna be like 29/30. What a load of BS. *sigh*

Oh well. For your reading enjoyment here’s the essay

welcome to wordpress

Posted in Uncategorized by petegent on February 23, 2009

So without further ado I’ve moved from squarespace to wordpress. What were the main reasons?

Mainly the astronomical costs – I was paying £11 per month for the advanced package just so I could have full control over the design elements. Pretty ludicrous when I only top 5 unique visitors a week (or a month).

Hmm.. I should probably work on updating the blog a bit more often though.

Want that!

From Oki-NI (A pretentious clothing shop)

Evisu Classic Japanese Gull Jean
now £90.00
was £149.00
Evisu 0001 painted Kamome jeans in dark Indigo with white pocket branding.

200901141217.jpg

This regular fit is a modern take on the classic Japanese 2001 cut, pioneered by the founder of Evisu, Yamane-san and inspired by original 1940s Levis overalls. It has a lower waist, is fitted in the seat and thigh and has a slightly narrowed hem. This fit has a shaped hip so it sits comfortably on the body and can be worn without a belt.

These jeans are constructed from 100% cotton, 13.5oz dry selvage denim and feature contrast top stitching, a button fly and copper rivet detail on front pockets. The Evisu Kamome or ‘seagull’ is painted onto the back pockets in white.

  

Started using 43 things again :)

Posted in Uncategorized by petegent on January 7, 2009

Hey all.

I started using 43 things again after receiving a note from another user about being able to get in and out of afghanistan safely – sketchy, but one of those crazy things I was considering on my pan asia tour (now changed to the NEW South American experience).

Until I add some kind of widget for it, you can access my profile here 🙂
