Not so funny as it used to be.

I was joking when I whipped this up. I’m beginning to think now it was born of premonition.

And then this arrives in my email today…


This test takes only a minute and has only one question, but a very important one.

With an honest answer you may discover your moral calibration.

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 Queensland , Ipswich to be specific.

There is chaos all around caused by severe flooding; a flood of biblical proportions.

You are a photo-journalist working for a major newspaper & 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 into 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 Julia Gillard!

You notice that the raging waters are about to take her under forever.

You have two options:

1. You can save her life; or

2. You can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of the country’s most powerful woman!


Here’s the question & please give an honest answer…

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

There’s no easy answer to that.

Chooosing the soundtrack would be a cinch, however.


  1. Hi,
    Very, very, hard question, I think I would go with the colour film, so that it would show that it was definitely real, as opposed to the black and white that tend to make photo’s look a bit softer. đŸ˜†

    • Such nasty reasoning! I can’t figure out why I didn’t think of it first.
