    But can you replicate it?

    A qualified maybe with a few tries, but more likely it would require experimentation and many trials to do it right. I have to get back to reproducing elliptical wheels on cars with my Graflex.

    OK then, I will...

    That's the plan... a light background and several experimental walk-by's...

    I'll composite the background with an interesting walk-by vignetted in...

    Looking again, I think this was one shot. The top-down view shortened pedestrian's form. Appears to be wearing suede jacket, swinging arms, possibly holding a paper. Some dark-ish collar or scarf. Grey hair.

    This may take some staging to re-create what originally was a planned, fortunate shot.

    1 second exposure from above on a tripod, and just do it a bunch of times with people passing by. No big deal.

    A fast walk (about 4 mph) is about 120 steps per minute; that means the right and left feet each move 60 times per minute. A slow walk would be about 30 times a minute. So a 1 second exposure sounds about right.

    For a slow walk (2 miles per hour) the walkers head would move about 3 feet in 1 second

    Keep the ideas flowing.. I'm looking for a suede jacket... And a volunteer from my neighborhood...

    I'll try half, quarter, tenth. Looks like a brisk pace.
