To rove = To wander about at random, especially over a wide area FRENCH = silloner a rover =a wanderer FRENCH = un vagabond www.flickr.com Rover (noun). 1. wanderer, traveler: someone who leads a wandering unsettled life. 2. ‘rolling stone’, ‘bird of passage’: a person who moves from place to place frequently. 3. nomad: a member of a people who have no permanent home but move about according to the seasons 4. drifter: a wanderer who has no established residence or visible means of support 5. itinerant: traveling from place to place, especially to perform work or a duty. 6. tramp: a person who travels about on foot, usually with no permanent home, living by begging or doing casual work Meeting him on Yearly Medieval Festival at Fort Tryon Park, here in New York I instantly remembered this not so often used in contemporary English word - ROVER. I love to talk with my heroes, so I came, asked him something but he didn’t answered. I looked at his eyes and saw there just sky and road, the only things real wanderer needs. Nothing keeps him here or on other place, all his belongings are always with him, in his backpack; his house is nowhere and everywhere in a same time. He doesnt follow any rules or laws - he’s absolutely happy and free like ‘bird of passage’ breaking any borders... Certainly it was just a role, impersonation of old medieval wanderer, may be traveling poet or singer but I believed to his image and... made a shot. Much better viewed large View On Black

silk = a fiber produced by certain insect larvae to form cocoons FRENCH = soie www.flickr.com Silk Handkerchief My mind went through a lot of ideas with this theme. I have plenty of silk ties for work, then I thought of the silk handkerchief that comes with some of my ties. What I did was place this handkerchief on the arm of my couch in the sunlight and took a picture using the macro setting. I like the ridge at the top from the crease in the fold. I also like some of the shadowing that I get. This picture is taking part in the 2009 Photo Challenge Group. The the number one place for challenging yourself to take your photography to the next level. You can also follow me on twitter @BrianNeudorff
