Oh, sure, just waltz out of here, October!

I hate to be the one to tell you this, but it’s the end of the month, and that means it’s abstract time! Gather the kids, pop some popcorn (the proper way, none of this microwave bullshit,) and settle down as we spin this sordid tale.

This month’s image was indeed taken this month, […]

September?! We don’t need no September!

September’s end-of-month abstract is a small section of the full frame, but doing it this way highlighted the details better. This came from a session which produced more than a few interesting images, but [broken record repeating sentence fragments about lack of time and all that horseshit]. I think I’m gonna hire a secretary […]

Auf wiedersehen, August!

So for August, we’ll have two month-end abstracts, and you can pick your favorite. Both were from central New York, a day-and-a-half and about five meters apart – well, my shooting position at least. The osprey (Pandion haliaetus) above was cruising past in the distance after sunset, with the light low enough that the […]

And June just said, “See ya,” and left

After a busy May, June was just kind of nondescript to me, without a lot to say for it, and I really only have a handful of photos from the month. Still, here we are at the month’s end and thus we greet our abstract.

Following heavy rains one particular night, I was checking […]

May, or May not

For our month-end abstract for May, we have two offerings, because I had two that I liked taken within the month – actually, there were three, but one is a little too similar to another posted just a few days back, so I’m keeping that one for later on. For these two, we have […]

We’re gonna have to let you go, April

I should try a lot harder to branch out more for the end-of-the-month abstract, and not feature as many flowers and water droplets – we’ll have to see what May brings us. But I still liked the effect of this one, so I’ll just wallow in my rut for another month. At a botanical […]

To the rear, March!

March has gotten a bit long in the tooth, so it’s time to send it out to, uh, live on that nice farm in the country. Yeah.

So our end-of-the-month abstract is quite current, being only a few hours old – it was shot at sunset on the 30th. The Girlfriend and I did […]

February has left the building

Well, not yet it hasn’t, but within a day it will – it is, naturally, the end of the month abstract. Once more, I’m not revealing what this is (though someone will likely know,) and all I’m going to say instead is that it is topical, very current, and a hint of things to […]

Ever see a guy say goodbye to a month before?

Let’s see, January 31st; there’s something I’m supposed to do today – now what was it? Extortion payment? No. Take my SATs? No. File an anonymous report about a former boss being a child molester? N–… well, yes, but that doesn’t have to be today. Damn, what was it?

Oh yeah, the end of […]

December’s Abby… something

Don’t make me explain the movie reference in the title…

Given that I’ve shot maybe six creative frames throughout the entirety of December, this month’s abstract shot comes from back in May, a cropped version of one of the many (hundreds, I think) sunrise images that I obtained while at North Topsail Beach. I […]
