Found Photograph - Niagra Falls - 1950

The image above will open in a window when clicked

This is a found negative, and I don’t know who took it. It was in a box of 4X5 photographs, but the others were close ups of wood.  They were obviously being used to document some work.
I love this photograph. I doubt you could fault the composition, and your eye gets drawn to the woman dressed in black. The rather surprising sculpted railings lead your eye in a wandering path back to the woman.  The tonal range is great, holding a nearly white value in the hanging mist over the falls.
