For some reason this shot reminds me of the opening scene from the classic film Lawrence of Arabia. This shot was taken from above looking down on an ally north of Pike Place just below First Ave in Seattle. The opening frames of Lawrence of Arabia show a motorcycle shot from above, a somewhat steeper angle but the effect is similar.
T.E. Lawrence didn't ride a Moto Guzzi on the day of his accident he was riding a Brough Superior.
