There won’t always be a photo of the day but today there is so let us celebrate this awesome photo by Sandeep aka Givemeabiscuit. I chose this photo because I am pretty sure I have stood in this approximate location and I can recognize two London landmarks.

Kodak will supply isopropyl alcohol to a New York state initiative started by Governor Cuomo that will produce 100,000 gallons of hand sanitizer per week. Hand sanitizer is an important tool in fighting the spread of COVID-19. Let us hope that this makes a difference.
Kodak is committed to helping fight the spread of COVID-19.
Kodak Supplies Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) to New York State to Aid in Production of “NYS Clean” Hand Sanitizer
Tuesday, March 31, 2020 —
In an effort to provide assistance during the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic, Kodak has entered into an agreement with New York State to supply isopropyl alcohol (IPA) to aid in the production of “NYS Clean” hand sanitizer for use in New York.
To support the state’s production of hand sanitizer–available to residents for free and distributed to impacted communities as well as state agencies like schools and the MTA–Kodak has begun delivering tanker loads of IPA from its Eastman Business Park facility in Rochester, NY.
“Kodak is committed to helping fight the spread of COVID-19,” said Jim Continenza, Executive Chairman, Kodak. “I could not be prouder of our dedicated team members who quickly mobilized to provide this essential ingredient for hand sanitizer. We will continue to work closely with New York and federal representatives to identify other ways to bring Kodak’s resources and technology to bear in the fight against this pandemic.”

Look at that darkroom goodness! Tag your darkroom photos with #mydarkroom and Ilford Photo will feature them on their website. They have quite a few nice photos already and the darkrooms run the gamut from super professional to temporary. I should post a photo of my failed darkroom that exists in a state of extreme tragedy bellow my basement stairs.
Ultrafine Online aka Photowarehouse has supported the #BelieveInFilm community for many years with awesome products and by giving me stuff to raffle off to awesome people. This time they have a sweet gift certificate worth $100. This is exciting.
For the giveaway I’m using Rafflecopter because it is easy and free. There aren’t a lot of rules because I know you will be respectful and not cheat. Even if you don’t want to enter the giveaway please pop over to their website and buy stuff.
If you are anything like me, you are stuck at home for the next century and bored out of your mind. If you are looking for something fun to do while social distancing I recommend giving Jason Avey’s #CameraChallenge a whirl. The rules are pretty simple with week-long challenges, a development period, and two post periods when everyone luxuriates in your photographic triumph.
I have some fun ideas for Week 1’s theme of Motion because I live by a very busy road and people speed by my house all day. Week two’s theme of Negative Space will be a little harder because I’m limited to my house and places I can trespass.
Leave your ideas for #CameraChallenge in the comments! (Please)
