Doesn't the walk sign mean "walk" and the wait sign mean "walk faster"! This is a fun group shot but is it a portrait. It's Selvin's call.

Another good point Cal, butit willcertainly be a challenge to makestraight-up posed portraits that are interesting to people who do not know the subject of the shot.

Like Cal said, this really stretches the defnition of portrait. I am inclined to say no on this one.

That's not to say the shot has lots of merit on it's own but as far a a portrait goes, "nyet."
