It doesn't amaze me, because I think it is obvious that the astronaut in the visor IS the one taking the picture.
It looks as if he is not facing the astronaut by the rock for 2 reasons:
(1) The photographer astronaut really wasn't
facing the other astronaut -- he was facing the rock -- the rock is centered in the frame.
(2) The visor is convex, therefore it distorts the image, further distorting the direction the photographer astronaut seems to be facing.
In fact, the astronaut photographer is exactly
where I expect he would be, considering the convex nature of the visor.
The image of the astronaut in the visor is so distorted and grainy that I'm not surprised the PLSS is obscured by the blobbiness of the original
I'm not amazed that this may be the first time this is being discussed, I'm more amazed that we are still discussing it.
