Political Storm

This test is very quick with only one question, but it's a very important one, especially considering the political news of the past week. 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. Please give due consideration to each line. THE SITUATION:
You are in Canada, Ottawa to be specific. There is chaos all around you caused by a huge early December storm with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are a photo-journalist working for a major Canadian 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 of the Ottawa River. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury. THE TEST:
Suddenly, you see four men in the water. They are fighting for their lives, trying not to be taken down with the debris.You move closer... Somehow, the men look familiar...
You suddenly realize who they are.. It's Stephen Harper, Stephane Dion, Jack Layton, and Gilles Duceppe! You notice that the raging waters are about to take them under forever. You have two options:You can save lives or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of the country's most powerful men at possibly one of Canada's most important historical moments! THE QUESTION: 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?

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
