For some reason I never keyed in on the above Conrad Milster photo in the Flagg book. When I finally noticed the shot, it solved one of the remaining compositional issues with the Brooklyn Terminal. Specifically, what to place in the vacant space next to the three warehouses. The National Cold Storage complex fills the space, does so with balance, has that “right fit” look to it, and puts a Brooklyn stamp on things without being over the top about it.
Here’s where the scene will go. I also think I can add some form of temporary foreground plate extending the river forward for photographic purposes. Put the plate in, put some vessels on it, take the shot, and touch up the edges in photo shop.
