Completed in 1895, the Milwaukee City Hall was among one of the tallest habitable buildings in the world. Over a century later this iconic city hall is now dwarfed by many of the buildings surrounding it. Since the height of this building has some history to it I wanted a composition that allowed the building to stand tall, by itself, once again. After some exploring I able to find a parking structure a couple blocks away that allowed me to get a level view of the tower and achieve the look I was after.
