Interesting picture by Thomas Pesquet illustrating the feeling of height and vertigo that PAO was talking about with the astronaut commentator in MMC-H during the spacewalk:

Full-res version for posterity

And yes, it illustrated the vertigo effect very well. Good for Thomas to have taken this picture.

I Am a Camera: On a Spacewalkt

NASA Johnson (via Thomas Pesquet)

Published on Mar 20, 2017
To everything, there is a season, including the time when a small video camera makes its first-ever
trip into the void of space. On Jan. 13, 2017, European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Pesquet wore
just such a camera on his spacesuit during a nearly six-hour-long walk around the outside of the International Space Station with his crewmate, NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough. Here’s that day boiled

down to three minutes, from the point of view of the camera!
