THE  SITUATION:

 You are  in Kwa-Zulu Natal, St. Lucia 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 a photo-journalist 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 into the  water.

 

Nature is  unleashing all of its destructive fury.

 

THE  TEST:

Suddenly,  you see a man in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying not  to be taken down with the

debris. You  move closer... Somehow, the man looks familiar... You suddenly  realize who it is... It's Jacob Zuma! You notice that the raging  waters are about to take him under forever. You have two  options:

You can save  the life of Jacob Zuma or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize  winning photo, documenting the death of one of the country's most  powerful men!

 

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?

Feeling sorry that you have weekend shift, especially on Easter (on the other hand, a juicy story might develop... along the lines of the quizz you posted).

To the question: I would opt for the high resolution colour film, and a 450mm zoom objective, using a motor-driven camera.

Hehe thought I'd make you smile. Working solid until next Saturday but alas I went to play in Hong Kong two weekends ago so I guess I have to;)

Aah the why make use of politics when Zuma himself is a joke. Gotta love it!
