Zybach seems to have allowed tourists to acquire a lasting Niagara remembrance in the form of a dramatic image of churning waters with their own image (suitable cloaked in waterproof clothing) artificially inserted into the picture. However Zybach's technique was not perfect and leaves the visitor's image partially surrounded by a halo-like glow and partially faded out at edges. A whimsical look on the tourist's face appears to indicate that he takes the situation with a proper attitude of humor. (Christopher Wahren)
