Test....Only one question.

Subject: This test only has one question, but it's a very important one.

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 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 woman in the water. She is fighting for her life, trying
not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer. .

Somehow the woman looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is. It's
Hillary Clinton!

At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take her
under forever. You have two options--you can save the life of Hillary
Clinton, or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo,
documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful women.

So 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?

"When in doubt, use full throttle. It may not improve your situation, but it will end the suspense."

I'd choose color so that you could see the terror in her eyes in full clarity.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Color, preferably digital. You can always enhance it later to produce whatever effects you want.

I'd also cut my head and forearm with something, and say that I'd tried to save her... because hey, free publicity is free publicity. Might even get a congressional medal (The Reps would love that she died, the Dems that you tried to save her).

Now: truthfully... I'd try to save her. I disagree with almost everything she stands for and believes in, but if not getting involved to save someone's life is a close 2nd place to killing them yourself. (I don't hold others to my standards). I certainly would not put myself at risk in a situation like that though. The best way to preserve life in an emergency is to not risk your own.
