This photo makes me dizzy and nauseated all at the same time.

As long as they don't stand up too fast...

Silly on them, cuz' they're gazing out, not down. They'd have the same view from 8 ft back.

Yikes! I can't handle heights either. My youngest son just went skydiving for the first time yesterday with a friend who offered to take him up. Ironically, I can't handle standing on a precipice and looking over, but I think I could go skydiving.

I choose not to, however. 😣

All in a day's work for my ironworkers, who basically live on the edge of a concrete slab forty stories up!

Yeah, it's not for me either...

Maybe as we've gotten older we've seen enough things FAIL that we're not willing to take the risk. But now that I'm older I swear, these huge drop offs make my a-hole squeak and my eyes roll back!! NOPE!! I was better when I was young. Now I don't want to be on the edge of ANYTHING. I'm with @jp in that I could probably jump out of a plane, but stand on the edge of something really high and look down?? NOPE!!

One of my cousins college summer job was as a window washer in midtown Manhattan, IIRC, 30 Rockefeller Center was "his" one summer. Not for me!

There's a lot that can be done with Adobe CG, don't worry (I don't think the photo you posted is real).

I get vertigo from simply looking up and down too fast, I also can't lay on my back to work under the sink, etc.
