    Tough Question

    Life is all about choices, so read on!

    Ethics test Question

    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 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?

    The black and white is always more dramatic. Besides the storm would wash out the colors anyhow!

    I would actually jump in and save her.

    then she would owe me a huge favor and could get me a date with Barbra Boxer.

    black and white of course since it captures more of a dramatic feel to things

    I go along with this idea, in black and white of course

    I'd shoot digital - choose color later - plus of course the ability to ''enhance'' a bit!

    Eww, tough choice.

    Well, I'd do what I always do.

    First, run out and buy a camera. While I'm at it, I'd buy and new watch, and then fill out the papers for the extended warranty (there is bad weather, after all.) Change the oil in the truck. Stop at Perkins for a good breakfast. Check on the bike, detail it if it's water-spotted. Call Betty for proper camera settings; discuss the new topics coming out in SWAT. Pee, because all of that breakfast coffee is taking its toll.

    Then I'd take a nice picture of all of us CCW guys leaving the area. Seeing us all come together would be a great Kodak moment. Then I'd buy a round of margaritas because my bike is clean.
