Some days I have a plan. Some days I don't. Some days my blog posts are part of a long-running project with some aim in sight, however strange and inconsequential that aim might be. Some days they are not. Some days they are thought doodles. Experiments in the land of what if. What if I take a collection of faces from some recently acquired Victorian Carte de Visites and bring them together? No digging. No searching for clues as to names, locations or histories. Just invite them to a virtual party. Throw them in the same room and leave them to it. Will No. 9 fall in love with No. 8? Will No. 4 take an instant dislike to No. 6? Will No. 1 discover her long-lost older sister in No. 3? Will this odd collection of faces, today brought together for the first time in human history, somehow sit at peace with each other and create an image that eases the passage into a new week? Perhaps. Some days it works, some days it doesn't.
