It could still work for them though.
Indeed with Blumlein the source is always out of phase with the ambience. The way the two mkh800 sre in the picture is actually one of the ways to get them as close to each other as possible, short of taking of the grids.

The only thing “wrong” with the picture is that the backside of the blumlein array is pointing to the drum.

I still do not get what all this fuss is about, the pic is not THAT unclear isnt it ?
The two mics are above the kit, crossed 90 degrees, with the backsides pointing down to the drum. The pic is taken more or less from above.
