In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. Looks like a lot of fun. Have you watched Mica’s “holi” vimeo from India? It is cheerful.

  2. I was using Canon’s 24-70 f/2.8L lens, which I think is considered weather-sealed. My 5D Mark II body is not, however, so I wrapped it in a plastic bag with a hole for the lens. It still has bits of paint ground into some of the controls.

    In the end, you have to choose between keeping your equipment safely in a box or studio and being able to get photos in interesting conditions.
