A Moral Dilemma

Happy New Year Ragone's .... Bubu is back from Kilisimasi break.

Mamma Mia - what's going on in our beloved Fiji ? ...  fires, power drama struggles and sulky tantrums galore.

I could only sigh reading all the latest news and information in your kind emails.

Whats shall we do ragone  ?

Before we embark on yet another yearly journey down the road to daily consternation, I have a moral dilemma for you.

With all your honor and dignity what would you do? This test only has one question, but it's a very important one.

Please don't answer it without giving it some serious thought. By giving an honest answer you will be able to test where you stand morally.

The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation, where you will have to make a decision one way or the other.

Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.

Please scroll down slowly and consider each line - this is important for the test to work accurately.

You're in Nausori ...along the banks of the Rewa River, to be exact. There is great chaos going on around you, caused by a hurricane and severe floods.

There are huge masses of water all over. You are a Fiji Daily photographer and you are in the middle of this great disaster.

The situation is nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot very impressive photos. There are houses and people floating around you, disappearing into the water. Nature is showing all its destructive power and is ripping everything away with it.

Suddenly you see a man in the water, he is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken away by the masses of water and mud.  You move closer. Somehow the man looks familiar.
Suddenly you know who it is -- it's Bainimarama !

At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him away, forever. You have two options.

You can save him or you can take the best photo of your life. Dilemma : So you can save the life of Voreqe B, or you can shoot a World Winning prize photo, a unique photo displaying the death of one of the world's most powerhungry and stupid Dictators.

And here's the question (please give an honest answer):
Would you select color film, or rather go with the simplicity of classic black and white?

Black & white, why waste my color film on the two-bit dictator.

I would select colour film, from which black and white prints can easily be made. To shoot this momentous event in black and white and then colorise the film would not provide acceptable results.

I would throw him the camera to take a colored shot of me in the middle of all the chaos.

DiBu, may we have your verdict on the answers given since as you can see by now that we are potential killers and would love mother nature to teach dictators like him a good lesson.

Luvegu's - I am at a loss for words at the amazing choices you have made.

Personally I think these days its quicker and easier to take a picture on your iphone hana?
