4th November 2014 - The Question to make you think!!!

Thought for the day: 'So, I am trying to work out how this Moebius strip works... It says on it: "For terms and conditions of use, please see other side."  '

From Roy Smallpage (Photographer extrordinaire): As he does not allow his posts to be shared or copied to others on Facebook I thought I would add it here on my blog instead and share ...

For my Photographer mates.....

You are in London. There is chaos all around you, caused by a storm 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. 

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 realise who it is.
It's the Muslim Cleric, Abu Hamza, the one-eyed, hook handed bastard who hates non-Muslims and wants the UK to become an Islamic state.
You notice that the raging waters are about to take him under forever.
You have TWO options:
You can save the life of Abu
You can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the country's most despised, evil and powerful men.

(And please answer as honestly as you can ! )
Would you select high contrast colour film, high density full colour digital or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?

Having seen this - I really have nothing left to say.. 
I lift a glass of Chateau 41 !!   Cheers
