Morality Test

There's a morality test with only one question, but a very important one. It features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a choice. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.

THE SITUATION:

You are in Florida . There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are 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.

*THE TEST:

Suddenly you see a man and a woman in the water. They are fighting for 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.

THE QUESTION:

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?

I would think, in all seriousness, that a high res color would be the obvious choice. Something that will really bring out the facial expressions.

This is funnee. I would use film that disappears in 24 hours. Who wants these two thugs saved for posterity?

Everyone missed the obvious:

After taking a high res color pic, photoshop a toilet bowl around the two non-victims.

That should do it.
