    Link: Life Really Does Imitate Art In This Case - What are the chances that the photographer just happened to stumble across this scene at the park and took a lucky shot?

    of course, they could have improved it, but for what I`m sure is just rounding up volunteers and posing them for an ameteur shot, this was pretty good.

    i`m not saying it`s fake, i am saying it`s very possible though. look at the lady in the red shirt, blue short shorts. if that`s supposed to be running, it looks like a pretty posed position.
