NASA's Flickr sample

NASA has quite literally put a huge amount of photos on their flickr

account. Here is one of the very fine examples!
As an example, here are one of several taken Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Aki Hoshide on Expedition 32.

Hoshide was a flight engineer who participated in the mission’s third session of extravehicular activity. During the six-hour, 28-minute spacewalk, Hoshide and NASA astronaut Sunita Williams, flight engineer, completed the installation of a Main Bus Switching Unit that was hampered by a possible misalignment and damaged threads where a bolt must be placed. They also installed a camera on the International Space Station’s robotic arm, Canadarm2. The bright sun is visible at left.
