Today’s end-of-month abstract is sponsored by Forgetfulness, where I intended to hit the button that starts recording video and pressed the shutter release instead; between the low light, the wind, and the activity of the newborn mantids (you couldn’t tell?) the photo came out a little less than ideal. Yet it’s a perfect illustration of the chaos and energy of… no, never mind, it’s not worth the attempt to justify. I fucked up, and it looks weird, and it shouldn’t be reinterpreted as any kind of commentary, but I got nothing else from this month that works for an abstract, save for some featureless purple skies when I attempted to photograph lightning that was completely obscured by low overcast, and even this has more going for it. Such is life. Roll May.
