It's NOT upside down. You need to change your viewpoint to yourself instead of imagining someone else playing.

Looks exactly like what I see if I tilt my fingerboard back towards myself.
And what looks like up and down are nearer and farther from me.

To the extent that you are looking at this like some disembodied observer, I recommend curing yourself of that, as it will make learning much harder.
