Looking UP LaSalle Street grants a unique POV.
From the photographer:

Financial District, LaSalle St. The building to the left is the LaSalle  Street Capital Management Bldg. To the right is the Art Deco Bank of  America Bldg.To accomplish the perspective, I had to lay down on the sidewalk with my  feet resting on the street in order to get both street lamps. In the  scan, I just did a regular 90 degree tilt. I like this alignment better.
