A few "safety shots" in a 30 days challenge I think is entirely normal as a non-pro shooter. I know I have a few items I default to if pressed for time or opportunity.
I like this one, too, Miguel. The focus on the pen with the slightly OOF writing almost makes it dream- or thought-like. I like that the focus brings out the cool texture of your writing surface, as well.This was taken at f/2.8; my outtake for today was taken at f/5.6. I went back and forth between them but for reasons I don't understand, I liked this one better.
