Here is a new take on an old joke!
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.
You are in the A.C.T. Australia, Canberra to be specific. There is chaos all around you caused by a bushfire which is also causing severe damage to the city. You are a photojournalist working for the Canberra Times, 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 buildings burning all around you.
Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.
Suddenly you see a man floundering in the bush.
He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down by the
You move closer . . . somehow the man looks familiar.
You suddenly realise who it is.
It’s Jon Stanhope (Chief Minister of the ACT).
At the same time you notice that the raging bushfire is about to run him down.
You have two options :
you can save the life of Jon Stanhope
you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the
death of the Chief Minister.
So here’s the question, and please give an honest answer :
Would you select high contrast colour film, or would you go with the
classic simplicity of black and white?
