The Photo Poetry Challenge

MoCh - Challenge #5 August 2012 - The Photo Poetry Challenge

Photo Poetry

Summary
Decided to do this challenge on the 7th of August, hence six days had passed without me making any "photo poetries". However I had done some in July, and did some extra in August to make up for it. The description of the challenge can be found here, and the project description can be viewed here.

What I found interesting about this challenge was to experience what words that did pop up in my mind.  It usually took close to no time at all writing down the "poem". It was fascinating experiencing how my memories from the time of shooting affected me, next to the mood I was in at the time of writing. I'm sure everything can be analysed, but I do leave that to the psychologists.

The September Challenge
Autumn is here and it is appropriate with "The Go to Class Challenge". For a long time I've wanted to learn about Machine Learning, hence I found it handy turning that wish into a challenge. I've already started the challenge, as I enrolled in a machine learning course at Stanford University last week. I can admit that it is very hard finding the time for studying next to everything else I'm doing. I've also one week behind the schedule, as I started a bit late. I'm not at all sure if I will manage to go through with this. The course lasts for 10 weeks, so this might become my challenge for next month as well.
