One of my close friends and I have taken to calling ourselves Ronin, and it came up again today, so I thought I would post the definition (wiki style) of the word. We use it in our own way, in that instead of katana wielding warriors we use our cameras, editing systems, and interpersonal prowess. Though I believe that in spirit, we share much with these men of old. We are not the bound servants of a single master, and yet we are not total mercenaries either, but somewhere in between. Driven by a desire for Beauty, Variety, and Conflict. Who needs a real job when you can do this?
