Does any one know if James Reilly got this photo, as described on the news bulletin on the home page of collectSPACE:
quote:One of the shots that I really want to get and I got on 104 but I didn't get quite the way I liked it, it was just to get a photograph past my feet with the limb of the Earth in the background and the land underneath, to get a real feel for what it's like to actually be in space?
Is there a (hi-res) link to either this photo or the photo he took on STS-104? I looked in the human space flight gallery but couldn't find anything like this.

Unfortunately, he didn't have a chance to capture the shot. We spoke about it at his Houston homecoming and he explained he was too busy during the spacewalks to pause for the photograph.
I had earlier looked for the 104 shot, and I do not believe it was among the shots chosen by public affairs to be released.
