Please note that these photos were taken by copywriter Patrick Saleeby. Obviously, photography is not his strong suit. But he wanted people to know it was really dark in there. And to remember that he’s a copywriter, one who’s not planning to quit his day job. He also wanted to make sure everyone knew he did his very best.
