Default Question of the Year

Got this in e-mail:

The One (1) Question Test.

This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally. The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.

Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.


You are in Florida, Miami to be specific. There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless.

You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.



Suddenly you see a man and a woman in the water. They are fightingfor their lives, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer. Somehow they look familiar. You suddenly realize who they are.It's Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi!! At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take them under forever. You have two options:
You can save their lives or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the deaths of two of the world's most powerful people.



Here's the question, and please give an honest answer...

Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?

FWIW, since almost every publication does their setup digitally now, you can make any color photo B&W with about 2 mouse clicks (maybe 3). So color is really the way to go

I'd throw the camera down and save them, seriously.

Is there a third option to use the film on a more worthy subject, like an energetic puppy or a cute little baby?

Do I sense some fanaticism here?

God, Family, Guns, in that order.
