One way to obtain the desired graph would be to define a function real_log which would map x to log(x) if x is positive, and return "not a number" if x is not positive.

sage: nan = float(NaN)
sage: real_log = lambda x: log(x) if x > 0 else nan
sage: y = lambda x: abs(real_log(x))
sage: G = plot(y, (-5, 5))
